    Product description

    Just a few miles of Château Gruaud Larose, Château Lagrange has been producing some fabulous wines since 1983 following an inclusive programme of renovation and investment. The wines are refined, elegant and expressive.

    Ripe blueberry and blackcurrant aromas with hints of leather and tobacco. Intense and refined on the palate with smooth tannins and a great length. Can be enjoyed now or could be kept.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Château Lagrange

    Château Lagrange is located within a few miles of Chateau Gruaud Larose. Wine growing on the estate started with the romans and in later years the ‘maison noble de Lagrange de Monteil’  joined the ‘Tenure of Pellecalhus’ to make Lagrange the largest wine producing estate in the Médoc at the time. Those two plots are still part of the domaine today and known as ‘l’Hôpital’ and ‘La Chapelle’. After successive ownership including the Baron de Brane, the Suntory group finally acquired Château Lagrange in 1983. They started by restructuring the vineyard, and offered the estate the technical means to follow its ambitions: “the production of refined, elegant and expressive wines, in the best Saint-Julien’s style“. They have also hired Eric Boissenot, a renown oenologist in Bordeaux who is involved in many estates including Château Latour, Château Margaux and Château Lafite-Rothschild, as a consultant.

    Vineyard & Winemaking

    The domain covers 182 hectares, of which 110 hectares are planted with 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 5% of Petit Verdot. There is an additional 7.5 hectares planted with  white grapes; Sauvignon Blanc (60%), Sauvignon Gris (20%) and Sémillon (20%). Wines are vinified plot by plot and blend only a few months after harvest, to achieve a better harmonisation of the tannins and plot origins. They age for 21 months in French oak barrels, 60% of which is new.

    Wine Produced

    Château Lagrange (grand vin) and Les Fiefs de Lagrange (second wine)  aged for 12 months in French oak barrel (20% new). A white wine is also produced; Les Arums de Lagrange.
