The Wine Guy: An Al-Fresco-Friendly White
This affordable French blend is perfect for warm weather sipping.
Saint André de Figuière “Cuvée Valerie” Côtes de Provence 2006 evokes the south of France with its sunny, rejuvenating acidity and slight, enticingly herbaceous flavor. The blend is unconventional: 60 percent Ugni Blanc, 25 percent Rolle (the French name for Vermentino), and 15 percent Semillon, which gives it some body. Enjoy it by itself, with patio finger food (olives, cheese, chips and dip), or grilled seafood.
Imported by the Country Vintner and available for $14 at the Vineyard, 1445 Laughlin Ave., McLean; 703-288-2970.
