This is a smooth, ripe wine bursting with white peach flavours and suberb lemon freshness. It has some concentrated apricot flavours on the palate which is kissed generously by spicy wood. It finishes with a long rich, toasty note.
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.
