Balan is a character in Arthurian legend. In black armour, he was cursed to guard a castle and let none pass... this is starting to sound a lot like Monty Python, did at any point this Knight say "Tis but a scratch?" Perhaps this winery is named Chateau de Balan because inside the treasures are so great a lunatic black knight will sacrifice limbs to protect it. With ripe aromas of blueberry and cherry jam and with balanced, silky tannins surely this wine deserves a protector, that even armless will announce to the world "it's just a flesh wound!"


Château de Balan has been the property of the Jeans family for two generations. They are very involved in the management of the estate, which is located in the Entre-Deux-Mers area and covers 24 hectares. The vineyard is planted on an exceptional soil. It consists of clay, limestone and sand. This great diversity and the influence of a particular microclimate gives elegance and aromatic complexity to this wine. The vineyard of Château de Balan is located on the hills and dominates the Garonne river. The estate produces two wines: a Bordeaux AOP and a Bordeaux Supérieur AOP.


The wine offers a beautiful and brilliant red colour with purple tints. The nose, persistent and complex reveals ripe black fruit scents with spicy notes. On the palate, rich and aromatic, delivers cherry and blueberry jam aromas. The wine shows a nice structure, well-balanced with silky tannins and ends with an ample finish.
