Chateau Lestrille Rouge Bordeaux Superieur 2016

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
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 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.
