Friday Afternoon with Le Petit Ballon!


It’s Friday afternoon after a very big week – what better way to unwind than with a bottle of wine?

The Clementine Com crew cracked open two bottles from Le Petit Ballon this afternoon, and it was big smiles and full glasses all round!


While most of our staff are buffs, a few of us are brand new to the wide world of wine. Le Petit Ballon offered the perfect introduction to a good red with the Domaine de Vissoux Fleurie and the Maison Brotte Chateau de Bord.

Both reds have complex, vibrant flavours – the Fleurie a fruity delight and the Chateau de Bord a more powerful drop – and we enjoyed them outside, basking in the first rays of sunshine all week!


Le Petit Ballon also sent out helpful tasting cards along with the bottles, to help out both novices and wine buffs alike. Knowing what to pair your wine with – be it cheese, meat or dessert – is very handy when entertaining.

This sort of thoughtfulness is just a part of the package with Le Petit Ballon, who also offer monthly subscriptions for those of us who prefer our treats to land neatly on our doorstep. The Apprentice box is perfect for those just starting their journey, and The Master box is an excellent monthly addition to a more curated collection. The monthly subscriptions also come with a copy of The Gazette, a collection of articles and picks from the makers themselves.


With monthly subscriptions starting at just £24.90 a month, Le Petit Ballon is a smart spend for those wanting an easy and luxurious way to unwind!
