🇫🇷 Vive la France! French wines take the spotlight in July for our wine flights! Come see us tonight for Flight Night to start a new month of our amazing wine & tapa pairings. We’ll be ready at 5, so please make reservations to help us with distancing protocols here: http://ow.ly/JF8D50AnhrP

This Flight Night begins on Wednesday July 1st, and the wines and their tapas will be available through July 7th.

First, SOHO will pour a La Légende de Saint-Martin Sancerre ‘18 from Loire Valley, France.  The winemaker offers,

“It shows an attractive, though not fully brilliant perfume of minerally accentuated citrus flavors and white fruits. The fresh, citric, medium to full-bodied Sauvignon has a very good fruit concentration, a skinny taste and a powerful and aromatic length.”

The second wine is a Maison Roche De Bellene Bourgogne ‘17 from Burgundy, France. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“The entry-level red Burgundy comes from vineyards in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The vines range in age from 30 to 80 years and are farmed sustainably. The major part of this wine is matured in barriques and the remainder is done in stainless steel. This maintains a pure style
with bright fruit and a fine texture.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a La Petite Lune 2016 from Bordeaux, France. Notes on the wine,

“At the tasting, the Little Red Moon offers a shimmering and deep ruby color. The nose is intense red and black fruits well walls. It is a fresh and fine wine. We find spicy notes finely peppery and flowery. The violet is present and is reminiscent of Merlot. The entry is round, silky, fleshy, very fruity and sweet! The tannins are fine, structuring and persistent in the finish. The Little Red Moon is balanced, fruity, rich, elegant. A Bordeaux upscale.”
