What are the specificities of Château Lagrange?
Chateau Lagrange is the 3rd Grand Cru Classé of Saint Julien according to the Bordeaux classification of 1855. Located on the left bank of the Gironde River in the Médoc, Château Lagrange is the largest vineyard in the appellation with 118 hectares of vines.
Château Lagrange has vines of about thirty years old planted on a sillico-clay soil and produces as many red wines as white wines. Its mythical red wine is a blend of 3 French grape varieties:
During the replantings of 1985 to 1988, the study of the soils allowed to adapt the grape varieties to the terroirs and to push the approach of a tailor-made viticulture, parcel by parcel.
Today, 67% of the vineyard is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% with Merlot and 5% with Petit-Verdot. The average age of the vines is 40 years, the oldest dating back to 1952. 11 hectares are also dedicated to the production of the estate's white wine and planted with 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Gris and 10% Semillon.
The 3rd Grand Cru Classé of Saint Julien is recognized as a wine of excellence with an aromatic depth, structured, perfectly balanced, racy and with an average ageing potential of 20 years.
Chateau Lagrange also produces a second wine, "Les Fiefs de Lagrange", with the same grape variety. A rather surprising wine for a second wine that has acquired over the years a reputation that makes it one of the stars of the en primeur sales.
As for the white wine, discover "Les Arums de Lagrange" from the Bordeaux appellation introduced with the 1996 vintage. A blend that guarantees a unique style including:
- Sauvignon Blanc 60%.
- Sauvignon Gris 20%.
- Semillon in barrels 20%.
Production process of Château Lagrange:
The grand vin blend is aged for 20 months in oak barrels, 60% of which are new wood. The second wine, "Les Fiefs de Lagrange", is aged for 14 months in barrels, 20% of which are new. In addition, the property has recently acquired small vats in order to refine its plot of land. Château Lagrange produces an average of 700 000 bottles per year. Its purity, its freshness, its tannic balance make it pass before some celebrities such as Léoville Poyférré or its neighbor Gruaud Larose.
The 1986 marks the spirits then the 1989 and 1990. The superb 1996 arriving afterwards creates the surprise. Château Lagrange remains regular and stable in tasting from one bottle to the next: colorful, aromatic, full in the mouth, perfectly balanced, with a tannic finish always coated and tasty.
