Château Lestrille, Entre-deux-Mers, Bordeaux | BKWine Pick

The Roumage family has been making wine in St Germain du Puch since the end of the 19th century and now, for the first time, it is a woman, Estelle, who is in charge. She makes both white red and rosé. The rosé goes under the label ‘clairet’, which is a bordelaise style of rosé with a longer skin contact (12-18 hours) giving a bit more colour and body than a regular rosé. It’s 100% merlot and it’s full of red currant aromas. They also make two red Bordeaux Supérieurs, one red vinified in tank (soft and round tannins with a fresh fruit) and a Cuvée Tradition aged in oak barrels (more full-bodied and powerful with some added complexity).
