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.

From half-bottle. Nose: red fruit (blackcurrant), spice, pencil lead, earthy, smoky, some greenness. Palate: blackcurrant, spice, earthy, pencil lead, some greenness/capsicum notes. Smooth, elegant tannins; moderate fresh underlying acidity. Elegant, restrained Bordeaux.

Balanced dark fruits on the nose, consolidating into blackcurrent in the mouth. Some almond, too, on the nose, perhaps. Lovely velveteen texture which seems to thin in the mouth with food. Hint of mint? Delicious and a good companion to a medium-rare sirloin with Dauphinoise potatoes and green vegetables. Yum.

This second Château Lagrange wine, more simple and accessible in all aspects, has nevertheless taken full advantage of the excellent care afforded to the great vintage. Ready for drinking earlier, it presents all the main characteristics of the estate in.

Feines Cassis- und Vanillearoma, sowie etwas Zedernholz. Kaffee- und Minzearomen, seidiges Gefüge, in welchem die Fruchtaromen harmonisch integriert sind. Geradlinig, herb und fest.
