Where did July go? There we were, enjoying our tour of French wines, and BOOM: we’re in the final week.
But, alas, we have one more glorious week of great french wine, and personally, we think we’ve saved the best for last! What do YOU think? Did you have a favorite? Feel free to tell us what you’d like to see again in the future, we’re listening!
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, July 25th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through July 30th.
First, SOHO will pour a Nicolas Potel Pouilly Fuissé 2013 from Mâcon. The winemaker offers,
“Colour: Pretty pale yellow colour. Bouquet: Starting with mineral notes, and developing into smoky, toasted notes prior to revealing aromas of orange blossom. Palate: Straightforward and lively, with elegant complexity and a lemon finish.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Jean-Claude Boisset 2016 from Côtes de Nuit. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“Visual: dark ruby red. Nose: open, aromas of black fruits, cherry and violet. Few notes of licorice. Palate: a clear wine with a good acidity and soft tanins.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Famille Perrin Châteauneuf du Pape Les Sinards 2015 from Chateauneuf du Pape. Notes on the wine,
“2015 is an exceptional vintage in the appellation. This wine expresses marvelously the beauty of the vintage. Intense red with purple reflections, Les Sinards 2015 expresses an intense bouquet of red and black fruit, sweet spices, noble wood and mineral notes. The mouth is incredibly balanced between freshness and volume, the tannins are fine and elegant, the finish is very long, aromatic, and sweet.
