Château-Lestage Listrac Medoc 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Listrac|
From one of several properties owned by the Chanfreau family in Listrac, this wine is firm, structured and has a core of dry, dark tannins. Its black fruits are also right there, waiting to burst through as the tannins soften. It will be a rich, perfumed wine with a good future. Drink from 2024.
The 2016 Lestage has a well defined and focused bouquet with attractive cedar and tobacco-laced black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, and well judged acidity. The finish is quite poised and elegant making the Listrac appellation proud. This is a well-crafted wine. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London.
