Second Vin du Château Lagrange 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The color is dark, with a fruity, fresh and ripe nose. Caressing on entry, the wine develops very fruity, and rather ample for the vintage. Displaying power and energy. Beautiful tasty finish, melting with a taste of licorice. Freshness and density are exemplary for the vintage. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com<br/><br/>

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.

Subtly fruity nose, touch of black spice, cigarbox, sweet wood, caramelly – lean and fresh in the mouth, soft tannins, nice bright acids, lightweight and fresh, lovely purity to the fruit, great integrated baking spice accents, real length to the fruit and spice notes (91-92)

Purpurrot, Nase und Gaumen bestechen durch Fülle, Aromen gerösteter Espressobohnen gefolgt von schwarzen Johannisbeeren und Zigarren. Der Wein zeugt von einer hervorragenden Reinheit, Textur und Tiefe.
