At Lestrille, Estelle and Jean-Louis Roumage make wines that are modern in style, fruit driven and made to enjoy.
Jean-Louis is an agricultural engineer who combines modern growing and winemaking techniques with a great respect for traditions.
The 96-acre property, which has belonged to the Roumage family since the end of the 19th century, is located in the small town of St. Germain du Puch (in the northern point of Entre-Deux-Mers between Libourne and Bordeaux about a half-hour south of St. Emilion).
Believing the essence of winemaking lies in the vineyard itself, they use sustainable winegrowing practices and do their very best to respect the balance of both the vines and the soils. The fermenting room allows vinification of each plot with tailor-made precision.
Château Lestrille wines are fruity, well-balanced, round and full of appeal. Aged in vats for one year, they are meant to be drunk young. Traditional winemaking techniques are used with great care, so as to produce a wine which fully reflects the grapes it comes from, along with their flavours and individuality.
Château Lestrille is working toward a SME (Environmental Management System) certification which will result in a more environmentally friendly way of working at all stages in the vineyard and at the winery.
