Le Petit Ballon – French Wine Giveaway #69

Le Petit Ballon

Giveaway | 16th January 2016 | By

Well I know many of you are trying to take a break from alcoholic drinks for Dry January, but please bear with me. Le Petit Ballon offers two bottles of wine a month on a subscription basis and Tin and Thyme has a three month subscription to give away. If I have tempted you, you’re unlikely to get your wine now before February, so no need to fall off the wagon just yet. I am no wine buff and often struggle to know what to buy. If I find something I like, I tend to stick to it. I’m surely not alone. This is where Le Petit Ballon comes in. It offers a small selection of wines hand-picked by top sommelier Jean-Michel Deluc. Unusually, for a French man, Jean-Michel trained to be a sommelier here in the UK. He soon became a master sommelier with international recognition as one of the top wine tasters in the world. He was the head sommelier at the Ritz for a while before moving on to preside over the Paris-Ile-de-France Sommeliers’ Association. I guess you could describe him as an expert. A subscription can be tailored to individual preferences, e.g. rosé only and changed online at any time. Wines can be chosen from the month’s selection or let Le Petit Ballon choose for a complete surprise. They come with The Gazette which gives tasting notes, hints and tips and further information. The wines are delivered to your door in the middle of the month. If you particularly like any of them, you can buy more directly from Le Petit Ballon website up to the 30th of the month after you received them. You don’t even have to buy a case, one bottle is fine, if that’s all you require. Le Petit Ballon team are happy to answer any questions or deal with possible problems at any time via e-mail. A monthly subscription costs £24.90 for the Apprentice Box or £39.90 for the Master box. Le Petit Ballon 2 I received two bottles, one red and one white. They were both covered with a protective sleeve and arrived in good condition. In the interests of research, Dry January ended on the 15th for us. We tried the white with a pizza this evening and mushroom risotto last night. The wine made a good match for both.

  • Domaine Lecompte – Quincy 2014 – a light white which goes well as an accompaniment to lunchtime cheese, pizza, risottos or simply savoured on its own whilst relaxing in the evening. It’s aroma reminded us of elderflower and indeed it had floral notes as well as fruity ones.
  • Chateau de Jau – Côtes du Roussillon Villages 2103. We haven’t yet tried this one, but its a medium bodied red made from a blend of grapes (Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre).

Thanks to Le Petit Ballon for the wine. There was no requirement to write a positive review and as always all opinions are my own.

    To be honest I like most red wine, particularly French, I like dry white wine and I love dry fizz – be it Champagne, English, Cava or Prosecco. My favourite probably is Champagne, closely followed by and English sparkling wine. I find that nicest with salmon and seafood.

    my fave red is Fleur de d’Artagnan Rouge. La Reserve, Saint Mont Plaimont which is fab with hearty herby or spiced food over the winter months. eg Bean and Lentil cobbler. my fave white is Gargenega, Veneto gorgeous on its own and fab with pasta, Tofu inspired dishes and hazlenut and broccoli bake.
