Château Lagrange St.-Julien 1992

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

In comparison to the more open-knit, flattering style of the 1993, the 1994 is a backward, less precocious, more tannic wine that needs another 5-7 years of cellaring. It is a wine that recalls the style of the more tannic vintages of the sixties and... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1992 Lagrange St Julien 6000ml

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.

This property is fashioning reasonably priced, rich, concentrated, lavishly oaked wines. The 1992 is one of the top successes for the vintage. The color is an impressive dark ruby, and the nose offers up scents of smoky, toasty new oak accompanied by... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
