Chateau Lestrille Rouge Bordeaux Superieur 2015

A fresh and modern style of Bordeaux with a deftness of
touch in the winemaking.


Producer Note
Château Lestrille is located at the northern point of the Entre-deux-Mers appellation
in the small town of St. Germain du Puch between Libourne and Bordeaux.
Passionate and dedicated winemaker Estelle Roumage makes modern, elegant
wines from sustainably cultivated grapes. The estate is certified with the High
Environmental Value (HVE Level 3) and Estelle believes the essence of winemaking
lies in the vineyard itself; placing considerable emphasis on respecting the balance
of the soil. Each plot on the 45 hectare property is vinified separately with tailor-made
precision.


Vintage
Generous flowering took place followed by a hot, dry early summer. August was
slightly cooler and damper, followed by good weather in September enabling the
grapes to reach full maturity. Generally the harvest took place earlier than the
previous year. 2015 has been cited as a great modern Bordeaux vintage of excellent
quality.


Vineyard
The vineyards are managed using sustainable viticultural practices. The utmost
respect is given to the balance between the vines, their natural environment and the
soil. These cool clay and silt soils provide good water retention and impart a powerful
quality to the final wine. This cuvée is made from plots which produce the fruitiest
Merlot.


Winemaking
The grapes were picked at the optimum maturity levels. Fermentation took place
with selected yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, retaining the
characteristics of Merlot while also preserving the essence of the terroir. This wine was
bottled after 12 months ageing in stainless steel vats.


Tasting Note
A fresh, aromatic unoaked Claret, showing vibrant aromas of ripe, soft plum and
cherry. Beautifully structured, with round and silky tannins through to a delicate hint
of spice on the finish.
