VINTAGE 2017 Tasting notes:
« A compacted yet rich red with blackberries and chocolate. Fine tannins and a flavorful finish. Fascinating! » James Suckling
“The 2017 Lestruelle has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and displays notes of warm red and black currants, mulberries and fresh plums with suggestions of pencil shavings, dusty soil and ground pepper. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, it has plenty of juicy fruit in the mouth and a fungi-laced finish.” Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate - Parker
