So France is a unique flagship concept store in Singapore which opens to the public on 22 March. It encompasses a bistro, wine bar, gourmet store and event space. Their offering reminded us of another event, Good France which we recently attended. We are excited to go on another round of French Food.
They present artisan produce, world-renowned wines and heavenly French delicacies direct from the rich terroirs of France, particularly from the Nouvelle Aquitaine South West region.
I have to say that this was the most comprehensive wine tasting session that I had ever attended so far. For each wine we tasted, we went through three-step processes. We started with visual examination by looking at the wine and analysing the visual aspects of the wine. Then we moved on to olfactory examination to smell the wine and tell the intensity and finesse. The last step is the gustatory examination – to drink the wine and describe the three phases – attack, mid-palate and finish.
After the wine tasting, we tried some oysters which were delivered from Bordeaux overnight. The oysters are so fresh and smooth, the jelly like texture does not give you any tooth resistances.
Next, we tried some French cheese, I like the blue cheese especially because of the rich but not so overwhelming smell and the melt-in-mouth texture, it is a great cheese for beginners who want to dabble in the joys of blue mold, but do not want to dive in head first.
Finally, we visited their gourmet store, they have chocolate, candy, traditional biscuits, French wine.
Every product is carefully selected for their quality.
Also for the savoir-faire of the artisans who are passionate about their craft.
More than 500 products come directly from France.
By far, the most attractive one in the So France gourmet store me is the wine in tube, the small packaging makes it so easy to carry and more affordable compared to a bottle of wine.
If you fancy a trip to France for lunch or dinner, or you would like some French wine with some delicious cheese and charcuterie, or you would like to taste some delectable French specialties and discover authentic traditional French products? So France is the right place to go!
