Palate

The wines of Château L’Estran offer a delightful concentration of fruit, exalting flavours of red berry and blackberry, bound together in a smooth, velvety, tannic structure. Maturing in oak barrels adds complexity and sweetness, whilst respecting the delicacy of the fruit and the finesse of the wine.
