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
2016 has been lauded as an excellent and classic vintage. Bordeaux saw a wet spring
in 2016, which built up the soil water reserves nourishing the vines throughout the
exceptionally dry summer which followed. The glorious, warm, dry days were coupled
with cool nights, perfect for grape maturation and concentration of flavours. Rainfall in
September revitalised the vines. 2016 produced small, ripe grapes and the wines are
marked by structured tannins, balancing acidity and superb aromatics.
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-based soils provide good water retention and impart a powerful quality to the
resulting wine.
Winemaking
A wine made with the utmost care from the vine to the bottle, this is the result of the
Château's top wine-making expertise. Each parcel was vinified separately in
temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit, followed by
ageing in carefully selected barriques, enhancing the wine with elegance and
complexity. The wine underwent further ageing in bottle, prior to release.
Tasting Note
A rich, powerful wine with a beautiful balance between roasted aromas and intense
black fruit flavours. With velvety tannins and well-integrated oak, the dark berry flavours
are complemented by hints of cigar box and a smooth, elegant finish.
