The grapes to produce Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge Château Lestrille were picked at the optimum maturity levels. The fermentation of Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge Château Lestrille took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain the fruit characteristics of Merlot whilst also preserving the essence of the terroir. The wine was bottled after 12 months ageing in stainless steel vats.
The vineyards are managed using sustainable viticultural practices. The utmost respect is given to the balance between the vines, their natural environment and the soil. These cool clay and silt soils provide good water retention and impart a powerful quality to the final wine. This cuvée is made from plots which produce the fruitiest Merlot.

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.
