As the month of July finishes, SOHO will celebrate the lovely and diverse wines of France for its Flight Nights! This week begins on Wednesday, July 27th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through Tuesday, August 2nd!
First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Maison Louis LaTour “Le Grande Roche”, Burgundy. The winemaker offers the following tasting notes,
“Of a bright, light golden color, our Montagny 1er Cru “La Grande Roche” 2014 has a complex nose with peach aromas and hints of muscat. Ample and floral in the mouth, it reveals iodine and peppery notes. A lot of freshness on the finish.”
Next, SOHO will pour a 2011 Romain Duvernay Gigondas, from Rhone. The wine is described as,
“Comprised of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, it knocks it out of the park on the nose, with loads of exotic spices, pepper, eucalyptus and sweet berry fruit-like notions all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, fresh and classically-styled on the palate, with good overall focus and high drinkability, it is upfront and ready to go.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a 2010 Château Peyfaures Bordeaux Supérieur from Bordeaux . The winemaker says,
“A sleeper of the vintage by producer Nicole Godeau, this blend of 85% Merlot and the rest the 2 cabernets displays elegance, purity, surprising density for a generic wine and plenty of black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with some loamy soil notes and underbrush.”
SOHO’s Executive Chef, Jeff Sigler, has created a tapa plate to be paired with each wine.
