At Château Lestrille, Estelle Roumage makes modern, fruit-driven wines. They use sustainable winegrowing practices to respect the balance of the soil as they believe the essence of winemaking lies in the vineyard itself. They vinify each plot on their 40 hectare property seperately with tailor-made precision. The Château 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.
Bordeaux Supérieur is an appellation tier applied to wines made within the generic Bordeaux AOP zone. They are produced from the classic Bordeaux grape varieties. The reds are, as their name implies, intended to be a slightly "superior" form of standard Bordeaux AOC wines. This wine is a beautiful expression of Bordeaux with lots of aging potential.
A medium-bodied Bordeaux showing concentrated fruit aromas backed by delicate woody notes. In the mouth is has good freshness, while the structure shows high quality tannins. Nicely balanced, velvety and powerful.
Pairs well with grilled or stewed meats, grilled vegetables, hearty dishes, Red Bordeaux arguably goes with everything!
