Delicatessen and wine shop in Bordeaux

>> Monday, February 21, 2011

We are in no way neutral in this case: Chateau Lestrille is a small, family-owned chateau in the Entre-deux-Mers region in Bordeaux, one of those “small and little known”, as opposed to “big and classed growths”. But this is the category where you can find many well-made and interesting wines at very reasonably prices (certainly a fraction of classed growths).

Lestrille is run by Estelle Roumage who took over the winery from her father a few years back. She is full of ideas and she has now opened a wine shop (selling not only her own wines!) and delicatessen. A wine bar and restaurant is in the pipe-line for next season. If you are a small family producer you have to have lots of energy as well as ideas!

And why are we not neutral? French Estelle is married to Spanish-Swedish Martin, and Martin is one of the wine guides for BKWine’s wine tours. You can hardly get a better insight into wine than that!
