Product Description

Chateau Ballan LarquetteChateau Ballan Larquette 2011 gained a gold medal in the Lyon International wine Competition and comes from an award winning estate owned by the Chaigne family who have been wine makers for six generations.  Ballan Larquette lies in a tiny village named Saint Laurent du Bois.

The Chaigne family have been wine makers for centuries but Regis not only makes fantastic wines but is also involved in several enterprises to increase awareness of good value, high quality Bordeaux.  He rightly deserves praise for his passion, pure hard work and dedication to raising the image of not just his own chateaux but Petit Chateaux across Bordeaux as well.Ballan Larquette and food

Rounded and well balanced, Ballan Larquette is a supple wine with ripe tannins.  It’s versatile and food friendly, pairing well with rack of lamb, duck, Italian meat based pasta dishes, juicy rump steak and casseroles.

    Delicious. Opened some last weekend for a dinner party. Let it breathe for an hour. Blew our guests socks off – you have some new fans, they loved it. [NB Originally posted 16.01.2014]

    I just wanted to say thank you for getting our order to us so promptly and I also wanted to convey how delighted we were with your recommendation of the Chateau Ballan-Larquette. It complimented the Beef Stroganoff perfectly just as you had suggested. Delicious 60th birthday dinner and would do it all over again! Luckily there are a some bottles left and we shall have them with duck confit on Sunday. A rather gastronomic weekend all in all!
