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.

An elegant wine with a lovely balance of blackberry and tobacco flavors and soft silky tannins. Not a blockbuster but well proportioned. Best after 1996. -JS Wine Spectator.

...Good deep full ruby. Explosive rather wild aromas of dark fruits leather animal fur and chocolate. Fat lush and silky with a seamless texture and a deep sweetness. This offers terrific volume and finishes very smooth and very long with utterly suave tannins notes of leather and game and a suggestion of surmaturite... A superb showing... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

One of this estate s superstars (only rivaled by the 1986 and 1996) the 1990 Lagrange exhibits sweet toasty oak notes intermixed with jammy blackberries cassis licorice smoke and underbrush. Full-bodied with lovely melted tannins an opulent fleshy mouthfeel and loads of purity as well as depth it has reached full maturity but is capable of lasting another 10-15 years. Release price: ( 210.00/case) Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
