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.

Raspberry and floral aromas follow through to a medium-to-full body with fine tannins and a citrus fruit and blueberry aftertaste. Second wine of Lagrange. Best after 2010. 25 000 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.

A very strong effort from Lagrange in 2006, this estate's tendency for including a nearly overwhelming oak component in its wines has been tamed in this cuvee, resulting in a better-balanced, potentially complex offering. A deep opaque purple color i... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Lagrange St Julien 750ml

A strong effort for this estate, the 2006 Lagrange competes with the finest wines of the appellation. One of my pet peeves with this wine is that the oak is often excessive, but in this vintage, it is... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Lagrange St Julien 1500ml

Schönes komplexes Bouquet. Zimt, Gewürznelke, schwarzer Pfeffer und Anklänge an Schokolade als Krönung. Der Geschmack bietet intensive Aromen. Diese lassen ebenso wie die Tannine oder das Rückaroma keinerlei Zweifel an der Zukunft dieser Flasche aufkommen.
