Chateau Ballan-Larquette, 2014, Vignobles Chaigne et Fils

For the money, an outstanding value claret that sends some of the famed / named houses to Coventry.

Pantone 209 with good legs in the glass, warm nose, wonderful dry mouthfeel, silky firm tannins, lovely aftertaste. Always a pleasure to imbibe a Chaignes creation.

Chateau Ballan-Larquette, Rose.

A deliciously refreshing Clairet from the house of Ballan-Larquette.

Paler in colour than previous vintages this is a taste of a good Summer, taste of cherries and aroma of the garden / cut grass.
