Château Ballan-Larquette Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Blending of Sauvignon and Semillon is magic : the sauvignon is fruity, with a lot of exotic flavours, and the semillon is bodied, round in the mouth. Result a a balanced appealig wine. Enjoy !

I'd say a very nice value, good acid and bright fruit. Lighter bodied style with sav blanc the predominant variety. Think very light fish dishes, freshwater over ocean (trout would work well!). Fruit would also pair well. But for $10 it's a steal. Might age well for 1 to 2 years. This would also be a very nice "lawn mowing wine", he mows, she drinks! I'm the "he". Enjoy and visit Livermore, CA for great wines!
