Three fabulous French wines will be highlighted at SOHO this evening for Flight Night! The wines and tapas debuting tonight are available through Tuesday, May 31.

Please make reservations here: https://www.opentable.com/r/soho-atlanta

First, SOHO will pour a 2020 Boutinot La Fleur Solitaire Blanc from Côtes du Rhône.

“Proper white Côtes du Rhône; fresh, medium-bodied, vinous. The nose is pretty and delicate, with a waft of fennel tops and hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavors are nuanced and refined rather than overt. Careful use of oak adds texture and structure without masking the freshness of this very drinkable white.”

The second wine is a 2018 Cave de Saumur Les Pouches Rouge from Saumur.

“Red Saumur has a beautiful, deep ruby-red color and a bouquet of red fruit (blackcurrant and raspberry). This wine is attractive and easy to drink. It is quite fruity and a bit spicy on the palate with the elegant, soft tannins that characterize it. “

Finally, SOHO will pour a Chateau Petit-Freylon Cuvée Sarah Bordeaux Superieur from Bordeaux Superieur.

“This powerful wine is rich in tannins as well as dark black fruits. With its structure and young concentration, the wine is firm with a dry finish.”
