A magnificent property of the Saint-Julien appellation, Château Lagrange now occupies an almost intimate place in the hearts of wine enthusiasts. Although its history begins in the seventeenth century, it was not until 1796 that Château Lagrange experienced a tremendous expansion under the impetus of its owner Jean-Valère Cabarrus, the Minister of Finance of Napoléon I in Spain.
The Château Lagrange would achieve the rank of Third Grand Cru Classé in the 1855 classification for the Paris World's Fair.
Japanese group Suntory will acquire Domaine in 1983, and spectacular technical renovations will be undertaken in the winery and vineyard to restore Lagrange's reputation.
Located on two gravelly ridges, the vineyard of Château Lagrange reaches an area of 118 hectares of vines, of which 68% are Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The wines are aged for 18 to 20 months in French oak barrels, 60% of which are new wood.
The property produces a Second wine, the Fiefs de Lagrange, as well as a third wine in Haut-Médoc, the Pagus de Lagrange.
The vineyard also has 11 hectares of white grape varieties for the production of their white wine Sec, the Arums de Lagrange, of which 80% is Sauvignon blanc, 10% Sémillon and 10% Sauvignon gris.
The wines of Château Lagrange are renowned for their elegance and complexity, where the finesse of the tannins coat a fully fruity palate.
