If you love France as much as we do, then you’ll understand why we pick the wines that we do, and offer the tapas to pair with them!  The French culture of enjoying wine while eating light and flavorful cuisine is well known around the world.  It is, indeed, a way of life, and a magnificent way of savoring the small things on a day to day basis.  We aim to adopt this practice at SOHO; won’t you join us?

This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday July 19th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through July 25th.

First, SOHO will pour a 2014 Domaine des Hâtes Chablis from Chablis, Burgundy, and offers the following tasting notes,

“Clearly it has the scope to improve much more over the next couple of years. It is richness than the Petit Chablis and its natural weight of fruit almost masks its strong minerality. However, as it opens out in the glass the complexity starts to flourish. Impressive. Drink from 2016.”

Next, SOHO will pour a 2015 M. Chapoutier Belleruche Rouge from Côtes du Rhone. The wine is described as,

“Garnet red in color, this wine emits aromas of red fruits such as morello cherries and spices of licorice and grey pepper. In the mouth this wine has a great structure with firm and silky tannins.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a 2014 Gerard Bertrand “Kosmos” from  Languedoc-Roussillon. The winemaker says,

“Kosmos has a deep ruby-red color. This powerful, elegant and nicely-balanced cuvee is endowed with generous red fruits aromas. The tannins are mature, subtle and the lingering finish is amazingly intense. Kosmos has also an important potential for cellaring.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joe Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
