Grands Crus from Saint-Julien
The Château Lagrange exists since the Middle Ages, when it was known as the "Lagrange Monteil" estate. It went from 120 wine barrels produced in the early 19th century to 300 barrels in 1842, thanks to the intervention of King Louis-Philippe. A few years later, in 1855, Lagrange was rewarded for its hard work, as it reached the 3ème Cru position in the Official Bordeaux Classification. This shining golden age did not last, however, and the estate was slowly forgotten by the public.
In 1983, the Japanese Saji family (owner of the gigantic Suntory group) bought the Saint-Julien estate from the Cendoya family and chose Marcel Ducasse as the new CEO. The vineyard was 57 hectares at the time. The Japanese group has invested in the area: the winery and castle were renovated in 1986 and the vineyard slowly extended to 113 hectares, regaining its former size.
The vineyard is located to the west of the Château de Beychevelle, it spans two north-south ridges of gravels mixed with sand and ferruginous clay.
