I enjoy having a nice glass (bottle!) of wine occasionally, as you may have noticed by the name of my new blog – Mummy Needs Wine! Therefore, when Le Petit Ballon got in touch and asked me if I wanted to try their monthly wine subscription service, I said yes straight away. Le Petit Ballon is more than just a monthly wine subscription service as you can do a quiz before you begin to tell it what kind of wine you like and if you like a bottle that is sent to you in a box, then you can order it individually on its own at a discounted rate.
There are two types of subscription boxes and they are Grape Expectations (£24.90 per month) and Age Of Raisin (£39.90) which both have two choices of wine in selected by Jean-Michel Deluc, former sommelier at The Ritz. The most expensive box is aimed more at connoisseurs than your average day to day wine drinker. In my Grape Expectations box I had: Domaine de Rabusas Laudin Blanc 2014 (white) and Château de Jau 2013 (red.) Included in all subscription boxes are tasting notes so even the amateur wine connoisseurs, like myself can talk about the wine in great detail to anyone who is interested. The tasting notes included information as to how to serve them, where they came from and what type of foods to serve them alongside.
I enjoyed both bottles of wine that I was sent, however I did drink the white wine without food. It was a bit rich for every day drinking so I would serve it with food if I ever had it again. I loved the red wine though and think it would be really good to drink alongside a BBQ or another summer gathering.
Le Petit Ballon have kindly given one of my readers the chance to win a one month’s subscription to try out their subscription box. All you need to do is complete the Rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!

I was sent a month’s subscription to Le Petit Ballon for the purposes of this review and given one to giveaway to a reader. All opinions are my own. I was not required to give a positive review.
