A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot This has a similar hue to the 2006 Les Fiefs but there is obviously more intensity on the nose. Blackberries, wild strawberries, and fresh tobacco leaf. Great lift from the glass. The palate is full-bodied, lots of ripe black fruits, cedar and graphite, good acidity, a little closed towards the finish, but this still represents a great second wine. Good length. Superb.

Château Lagrange is a renowned winery located in the Saint-Julien appellation of the Bordeaux region in France. The history of this estate dates back to the 18th century when it was owned by the Baron de Brane, who also owned the famous Château Mouton Rothschild. The estate was later acquired by the Count Duchatel in 1820, who expanded the vineyards and modernized the winemaking facilities.

Today, Château Lagrange is owned by the Japanese beverage company Suntory and is known for producing some of the finest wines in the Saint-Julien appellation. The estate covers 118 hectares of vineyards, which are planted with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot grapes.

The winemaking process at Château Lagrange is a combination of traditional and modern techniques. The grapes are hand-harvested and sorted before being fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for 18 to 20 months, depending on the vintage.

The wines produced by Château Lagrange are known for their elegance, complexity, and aging potential. The flagship wine of the estate is the Château Lagrange Grand Vin, which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. This wine is characterised by its deep ruby colour, aromas of blackcurrant, cedar, and tobacco, and a long, smooth finish.

In addition to the Grand Vin, Château Lagrange also produces a second wine called Les Fiefs de Lagrange. This wine is made from younger vines and is aged for 12 to 14 months in oak barrels. It is a lighter and more approachable wine than the Grand Vin, but still exhibits the same elegance and complexity.

Overall, Château Lagrange is a producer that is highly regarded in the world of wine. Its wines are sought after by collectors and connoisseurs alike, and the estate has a long and rich history that adds to its allure. If you are looking for a Bordeaux wine that is both elegant and complex, Château Lagrange is definitely a producer to consider.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 percent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation.

The finest (and most expensive) of these are the wines from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The former is focused (at the top level) on Cabernet Sauvignon, the latter pair on on Merlot.

The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines based on Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. These range from dry whites to challenge the best from the Burgundy region (Pessac-Léognan is particularly renowned) to the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.
