Unique wines from one of the best vineyards in Montagne-Saint-Émilion area, Château Lestage, known for its rich terroir.
The estate is located on the highest slopes of Montagne hills, which leads to the excessive amount of sun, water deficiency and good exposure to the winds of the Atlantic.
The average age of the vines is about 50 years, which allows to harvest not less than 45 hl per ha.
The rich, Merlot-based bouquet of these wines traces light notes of anise, giving individuality and freshness to their deep taste.
Lestage wines can be cellared for 5-15 years.
