Château Lagrange, Saint Julien, Bordeaux – BKWine Pick

Chateau Lagrange

Chateau Lagrange

This Grand Cru Classé was bought in 1983 by the Japanese beverage company Suntory which got a lot of attention at the time. A Grand Cru Classé in the hands of the Japanese! Almost a bit of a scandal. But being Japanese hasn’t really done Château Lagrange any harm. On the contrary.

An enormous amount of money has been spent on investments, both in the cellar, the vineyard and in the beautiful park. Lagrange, with 115 hectares of vines (157 hectares in total), is one of the biggest estates in Médoc.

The investments have paid off; the quality today is very high. Lagrange produces three different wines: Château Lagrange, Les Fiefs de Lagrange (the second wine) and a beautiful white wine called Les Arumes de Lagrange, made of 60 % sauvignon blanc , 30 sémillon och 10 muscadelle. 4 hectares are planted with white grapes.

The red grapes are cabernet sauvignon (65 %), merlot (28 %) and petit verdot (7 %). Les Fiefs de Lagrange is one of our favourites, a very good Bordeaux for a reasonable price. We recommend the vintage 2007 of both Lagrange and Les Fiefs.
