CHATEAU LESTRILLE GRAND VIN DE BORDEAUX ROUGE 2018, Bordeaux
Availability: In stock
The mantra at Lestrille is to make wines that are modern in style, fruit driven, and simplistic in craft. This 96-acre estate, which has been in the Roumage family since the end of the 19th century, is now ran by Estelle after her father Jean-Louis Roumage retired. An agricultural engineer, Jean-Louis taught Estelle how to combine modern growing and winemaking techniques while showcasing great respect for tradition and sustainability. Believing the essence of winemaking lies in the vineyard itself, this 100% Merlot is fermented in stainless vats and aged only in cement tanks…NO OAK!! Bright red hues are indicative of the fruits to come. Aromas of fresh ripe red fruits, cherries, and pink peppercorns lead into a palate of juicy red berries, tart cherries, and pomegranate. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel, its well balanced and structured throughout finishing long with crisp, clean minerality thanks to the fermentation and aging processes. Juicy and bright, this Bordeaux is best drunk young. Crafted to enjoy on its own, during the warmer months, and with lighter dishes you don't want to miss out on this unique wine!!
