So many drinkable french wines, so little time….we’re well into the month of our French Flight Nights for July! From our tapas that offer a nod to French cuisine, to the beautiful Chablis and Pinot Noir that we picked for this week; it’s safe to say that our guests are excited to try these new wines pairings! Who’s coming to sip with us, and which one will you try first?

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday, July 10th, and the wines and their tapas will be available through July 16th.

First, SOHO will pour a Domaine Louis Moreau Petit Chablis ‘17 from Chablis, Burgundy, France.  The winemaker offers,

“Petit Chablis is a fresh and very aromatic wine. Its fruity nose carries a suggestion of apple and citrus notes. In the mouth, a nice gustatory attack is combined with a round and fine palate.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Trimbach Pinot Noir Reserve 2016 from Medoc. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“Medium – light garnet, very brilliant with aromas of crushed wild strawberries and raspberry compote, with an element of minerality. Soft and lush on entry, vibrant and refreshing with crisp fruit flavors. Pairs well with sausages, smoked meats as well as cheeses.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Chateau Tour Prignac Grande Reserve 2014 from la Principauté d’Orange, Loire. Notes on the wine,

“Chateau Tour Prignac shows a beautiful dark ruby red color. Ripe red fruit on the nose with a delicious touch of spice. A smooth, well-structured body with a vein of silky tannins. Admirable elegance gives way to a very pleasing finish – full of promise.”

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