One word to describe my wine
Elegant and fruity

The history of the Château
Built in the XVIIIe century by the architect LOUIS, also responsible for the famous Grand Théâtre in Bordeaux), Balac is the property of TOUCHAIS's family, wine grower in ANJOU country, since 1964.Since 1973 the son LUC has put great efforts into renovating the estate, extending the vineyards and restoring Balac to its former glory. His son Lionel, oenologist, joined the team in 2005 to add his able support and secure the estate's future prosperity.
