Tasting Notes

A solid, masculine-styled effort, the 2012 Lagrange lacks charm, but it does offer a muscular, medium-bodied, slightly rustic style with plenty of wood (a signature of this property), and an adequate mid-palate, texture and finish. The tannins and structured style suggest 2-3 years of cellaring are needed.

About the Winery

The Japanese group, Suntory, acquired the domain when the purchase was signed by the company president, Mr Keizo Saji, in1983. Marcel Ducasse was then recruited along with Kenji Suzuta to undertake the complete restructuring of the vineyard and a spectacular renovation of the whole estate. This first step was to mark the rebirth of CHÂTEAU LAGRANGE. After twenty years of dedicated work, as well as human and technical investments, Lagrange had once again found recognition amidst its peers and had achieved a certain sense of fulfilment.
