The Château Lagrange, located in Saint-Julien, has been a Troisième Grand Cru Classé since 1855. Emblematic of the Great Châteaux of the Médoc, it is the largest Cru Classé de Bordeaux with 118 hectares of vines. Different owners succeeded each other until 1983, when the Japanese beverage group Suntory purchased the estate from the Cendoya family. Suntory has been able to make the necessary investments to refurbish the estate in spectacular fashion. Indeed, significant work has been undertaken, both in the vineyard and on the technical facilities (cellar and fermenting room). Efforts continue to this day and production methods are evolving towards a greater respect for the environment.
Every year, Château Lagrange produces a powerful and elegant long-keeping wine. It is recognised for its consistency and balance. Cabernet-Sauvignon (67%) dominates the blend, supplemented by Merlot (28%) and Petit Verdot (5%). Château Lagrange is also one of the few Crus of the Médoc to produce a white wine of great quality: Les Arums de Lagrange.
What they appreciate in U'Wine
U’Wine is a company that was created 5 years ago. I was approached very recently and I must confess that the project is relatively attractive given the approach of this company. They buy wines En primeur and they do a real and serious merchant work. The wines are held and stored to then offer to individual customers rare and luxurious formats such as Magnum, Double Magnum, and Jeroboam, etc. packed in luxurious small wooden crates. This offer is hand-stitched, made-to- measure. The approach here is quite interesting and sometimes differs from most merchants with whom we can work.
