Château Lagrange Pomerol 1993

Winemaker's Notes:

The excellent Château Lagrange is one of St. Julien's great wines - fine, full-bodied and concentrated. The vintages since 1985 introduce ripe fruit aromas of rich black currant and cherry, spicy, toasty new oak, minerals, and in some vintages cedar and charcoal. They are appealing when young but also have great potential for long aging. They are also very reasonably priced for their level of quality, and dependably fine 7-20 years following their vintage.

Château Lagrange was known in the Middle Ages as the Noble House of Lagrange Montei. Records of the successive owners go back as far as 1631. In 1824 the total production was 120 barrels (12 000 cases). In 1842, the ex-Home Secretary to King Louis-Philippe, Count Duchatel, left his mark on the property and the Médoc by introducing a drainage system in the vineyard. The Count brought the annual production up to 300 barrels. This was a golden age for Lagrange, with the famous 1855 classification awarding the property the title of Third Classified Growth. The beginning of the 20th century was much less glorious as the economic conditions deteriorated. Despite several changes in ownership the yields were lower and of lesser quality. A decline in business meant the estate had to be broken up : from 280 hectares (around 700 acres) in1840, the domain had been reduced to 157 hectares (392 acres) by December 1983, when the Japanese group Suntory bought it from the Cendoya family, owners since 1925.

A very good St.-Julien from this consistent property, really caressing your palate in velvety tannins. Medium body and pretty berry, vanilla, toasted oak character. Better in 1997. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1993 Lagrange St Julien 3000ml
