From the bottle:
“The Lestonnat winery is family owned and located near Saint-Emilion. We source fruit from the best vineyards and terroirs within the Bordeaux Superieur appellation to create a dense, structured yet delicate wine reflecting the extraordinary potential of the region.
‘As the Lestonnat winemaker and owner, my vision is to craft world-class wines that are true to their Bordeaux heritage – stylish, great for cellaring and memorable tastings’ – Joost van der Does de Willebois
The 2012 Lestonnat Bordeaux Superieur begins with smoky and a bit green aromas along with red fruit, licorice, vanilla and a bit of cinnamon and chocolate. This wine is not a pop and pour proposition as it definitely needs a good decant to show as its best. After that you’ll be pleased to find a smooth and tasty medium-bodied wine with a good earthy undertone. Nice streaks of baking spice and black pepper lead into the dry, medium length finish.
