French Wines

Chateau Lagrange, St. Julien, Medoc, BordeauxChateau Lagrange
Château Lagrange was known in the Middle Ages as the Maison Noble de Lagrange Monteil. A history of the different owners goes back to 1631. In 1824, the production was 120 tonneaux (12,000 cases). In 1842, the former Minister of the interior of King Louis-Philippe, Count Duchatel, left his mark on both the property and the Médoc by initiating the drainage of the vineyard. The Count increased the production to 300 tonneaux. This was the golden age of Lagrange, during which it was attributed the position of third growth in the Classification of 1855. Duchâtel died in 1860 and there followed several owners who could do nothing to stop the ravages of epidemics such as phylloxera or prevent catastrophes such as the First World War and the economic malaise of the 1930's. Consequently much of the wine had to be declassified and sold under different labels. As pockets were squeezed, plots of the vineyard were amputated, including one 32-hectare parcel sold to Jean-Eugène Borie in 1970 and absorbed into Château Ducru-Beaucaillou.

 Chateau Lagrange, St. Julien, Médoc, BordeauxIn 1983, Chateau Lagrange was purchased by Suntory of Japan. As the largest drinks conglomerate in Japan, Suntory had the resources to bring Lagrange back to the level of quality that it was capable of producing. On the recommendation of Michel Delon and professor Emile Peynaud, management of the estate was entrusted to Marcel Ducasse, who graduated from the Institute of Œnology and worked for 13 years at the Institut de la Vigne et du Vin. During the decade following the purchase of the chateau by Suntory, Ducasse replanted most of the vineyards, replaced all the barrels, repaired or rebuilt the buildings on the property, brought the winemaking equipment and techniques up to modern standards and created a new wine 'style' for Chateau Lagrange. An entirely new winery was built and ready for the 1985 vintage.

Chateau Lagrange
Today, the vineyard of Lagrange, lying entirely on the commune of Saint-Julien, covers an area of 113 hectares. The vat-house at château Lagrange is one of the most sophisticated in Médoc: 46 stainless-steel vats of 220 hectoliters each fitted with an independent temperature control system. Ageing is carried out in an entirely new air-conditioned cellar, in oak barrels whose percentage of new wood varies in relation to the vintage but which is always on the order of 50 to 60%. In this way, the winemaking and ageing of the “grand vin” château Lagrange is done in accordance with the methods and the know-how designed to produce a wine for long ageing, thoroughly typical Saint-Julien in style, tannic with fairly low acidity, very rich and mature. From the 1983 vintage on, a second label was created called “Les Fiefs de Lagrange”
Chateau Lagrange, Saint Julien, Bordeaux Chateau Lagrange Magnum 2003 St Julien, BordeauxRed Wine
Beautiful aromas of plums, violets, berries and licorice. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long finish. A richly fruity, forward, deep example that will undoubtedly firm up as it evolves in barrel and bottle. Very pretty indeed. Well-crafted, showing lots of character. Wine Spectator Review 92-94
