What are the specificities of Château Lagrange?
Château Lagrange is the 3ème Grand Cru of Saint Julien according to the 1855 Bordeaux classification. Located on the left bank of the Gironde in the Médoc, Château Lagrange is the largest vineyard in the appellation with 118 hectares of vines.
The Château Lagrange has vines of about thirty years old planted on a sillic-clay soil that produces as many red wines as whites. Its mythical red wine is a blend of 3 French grape varieties:
- Cabernet Sauvignon 67%
- Merlot 28%
- Le petit Verdot 5%
The 3ème Grand Cru classé de Saint Julien is recognised as a wine of excellence with aromatic depth, structured, perfectly balanced, racy and with an average keeping potential of 20 years.
The château Lagrange also produces a second wine, "Les Fiefs de Lagrange", from 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 sales en primeur.
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:
Château Lagrange uses stainless steel vats from 36 to 220 hectolitres in the vatting process for a period of 15 to 20 days. The wine is then placed in oak barrels (60% renewed every year) for 16 to 20 months in the wine maturing process. The estate has a production method that tends towards respect for the environment and aims to reduce the estate's ecological imprint.
In addition, the property has recently equipped itself with small vats in order to refine its plot of land.
Château Lagrange produces an average of 700,000 bottles per year.
Its purity, freshness and tannic balance make it surpass certain famous wines such as Léoville Poyférré or its neighbour Gruaud Larose.
The 1986 made an impression, then 1989 and 1990. The superb 1996 arrives after creating the surprise. The Château Lagrange remains regular and stable in tasting from one bottle to another: coloured, aromatic, full in mouth, perfectly balanced wines, with a tannic finish always coated and tasty.
The best vintages of Château Lagrange are: 2015, 2010, 2009, 2001, 2000, 1996, 1995, 1990, 1989, 1986.
