FRIDAY TASTING ALERT
Kick off the weekend at Dandy tonight, 4-7 pm, with a tasting of four stellar wines from the south of France. Festival Sud de France is a city-wide celebration of the food, wine, and culture of the Languedoc-Rousillon region, and we’re delighted to share a selection of their unique wines with you!

Domaine Reine Juliette Picpoul de Pinet 2011
This brisk and breezy white hails from a vineyard that literally used to be part of the ocean floor. The soil still hides fossils of ancient sea creatures which nourish the grapes and lend the wine a bracing acidty and refreshing minerality. “Picpoul” means “lip stinger” and there’s nothing more refreshing on a hot day. $12
Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup Cuvee Sainte Agnes 2010
50% Roussanne, 30% Clairette, 10% Marsanne, and 10% Grenache Blanc, Cuvee Saint Agnes is a truly special white that really embodies the terroir of the region. Farmed biodynamically with little intervention during vinification, it’s a full bodied wine with undeniable elegance. $23
Domaine la Croix Belle Le Champ du Coq 2010 
A blend of Syrah and Grenache from a sustainable vineyard in the Cotes du Thongue, Le Champ du Coq is dark and fruit forward, with hearty notes of blackberries and currants. It’s an easy choice for burgers on the grill! $13
Domaine Faillenc Saint Marie Corbieres 2009
Here’s another approach to the Syrah and Grenache blend, this time from Corbieres. This complex red tastes like the South of France: black cassis, with hints of black olive and violets. A perrenial favorite! $16

WINE TASTING TONIGHT 6-9 PM

Domaine Saint-Felix Saint Chinian

An organic blend of some of 55% Syrah, 35% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre.  This wine is well-structured and aromatic.  The grapes are harvested in the dead of night for the most concentrated flavor- hints of blackcurrant, strawberries, and wild herbs abound. $15

Gilles Louvet “O” Pinot Noir

Hand-picked grapes, carefully tended, create a pretty spectacular final product in this Organic Pinot Noir.  Smokey black fruit, a little spice, and a lengthy finish are a good match for lamb, poultry, and ripe cheese.  And you can feel good buying it-the packaging is recycled and the vineyard is fully sustainable!  $18.50
