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.

Klassisch, ganz klar Bordeaux, so präsentiert sich dieses Gewächs im Bouquet. Der Sinneseindruck im Gaumen bestätigt dies: Die Gerbstoffe sind samtig weich, die Frucht ist präsent und eingebunden, das Rückgrat passt. Das Ganze bildet eine Einheit, eine klassische Einheit, die durch und durch Bordeaux-like ist. Der Zweitwein von Château LAGRANGE gefällt, bereitet viel Trinkvergnügen und dies zu einem ganz vernünftigen Preis, notabene.

Licorice blackberry and mineral undertones. Full-bodied with silky and refined tannins. Long finish. Just about ready. Balanced and harmonious.-- 95/ 96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2007. JS Wine Spectator.

The 1995 Lagrange is similar to the 1996 but the fruit is sweeter the acidity lower and the wine less marked by Cabernet Sauvignon. The color is a deep ruby/purple. The wine boasts a roasted herb charcoal black currant mineral and new oak-scented nose. Medium to full-bodied and ripe with copious quantities of jammy black cherry and cassis flavors presented in a medium-bodied low acid moderately tannic style this well-endowed purely made wine requires cellaring. Anticipated maturity:
