The balance and smoothness of a fine red wine from Saint-Julien

The estate

In the Médoc, Château Lagrange is one of the iconic references in the Saint-Julien appellation. The property boasts ancient origins dating back to Gallo-Roman times, when the estate housed the "Villa Rustica". It was back then that the Order of the Templars first began producing wine at the property. Château Lagrange experienced a real golden age in the 18th century and earned the title of 3rd Classified Growth in the Official Classification of 1855. It was in 1983 that Château Lagrange was acquired by the Japanese group Suntory and its president Keizo Saji. Following a major renovation and investment project carried out by the dynamic new team, Château Lagrange has become one of the top producers of the Médoc region.

The vineyard

Château Lagrange produces Saint-Julien wines from a 118-hectare vineyard, all in one piece. The vineyard enjoys a superb location on two gravelly hills. The vines are 45 years old on average and are planted in silica-gravelly soils with a clay-limestone subsoil. The vineyard enjoys a temperate climate with an oceanic influence.

The vintage

2012 was a year marked by strong heatwaves, punctuated by intense rainy episodes. The hard work carried out by the château's teams both in the vineyards and in the cellar resulted in a high-quality wine, following the latest harvest in the estate's history.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (67%)

Merlot (30%)

Petit Verdot (3%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Soft berry and blackcurrant fruit with background earth and subtle oak is present in this medium-bodied, slightly austere and angular style of wine. It will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring and should keep well for 12-15 years.
