Want to jump over to France and enjoy a month full of magnificent wines and cuisine? Yeah, us too! But if you’re like the rest of us who can’t just leave their jobs and travel abroad, then let’s think outside the box, shall we?
SOHO is featuring our favorite French wines for the month of July, and we couldn’t be happier! You can stick close to home, but still enjoy the best parts of France without the sting of airfare and jet lag. Sound good?
This week’s Flight Night begins on Wednesday, July 11th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through July 17th.
First, SOHO will pour a Bieler Pere et Fils Rosé 2017 from Provence. The winemaker offers,
“Bieler Pere et Fils Rose tastes like biting into a freesia-infused apple in a sexy-hippy version of the garden of Eden. It’s clean, light taste seems to promise that attractive strangers are about to drape your body in crisp, sun-dried linen before leading you to a hammock where sultry events will unfold. And with this Rose you don’t have to worry about morning-after guilt, because one sip will make even regret taste sweet.”
Next, SOHO will pour a Domaine de La Prébende Beaujolais 2016 from Beaujolais. The wine is described by the winemaker,
“The Anna Asmaquer Beaujolais is an old vines blend with profound minerality, a bright wild berry nose, and possesses typique Beaujolais finesse. The grapes are harvested manually and vinified completely without sulp[her dioxide. The wines are not chaptalized, filtered, or degassed and only natural yeasts are used for the fermentation. La Prébende crafts one of the best Beaujolais AOC values available today.”
Finally, SOHO will pour a Chateau Saint-Andre Corbin St Georges-St Emilion 2015 from St Emilion, Bordeaux. Notes on the wine,
“Intense purple robe. Rich fruity nose of ripe Merlot: chocolate and toasty oak flavors. Full, round, lush, fruit driven palate with excellent structure, balance and silky tannins.”
