Tasting Notes

Plump, ripe blackberry and fresh cassis liqueur notes dominate the Ch. Lagrange. The nose is at first quite restrained but then broadens to reveal a massive concentration of fruit. Very pure and very intense, this will need some time for its true power to be revealed.

The Producer

Château Lagrange was for many years perceived as a tired, underperforming St Julien château that was unworthy of its 3ème Cru Classé status.

In 1983 it was purchased by the Japanese Suntory Group which set about renovating the vineyards and the winery. Lagrange rose to become a model estate and even today few Bordeaux properties can match Lagrange, with its huge barrique chais and its state of the art cuvier with its 56 temperature-controlled, stainless steel cuvées.
