A Bordeaux Icon
November 20th – Chateau Lagrange’s vineyard spans 291 acres on a single block around the château as it has since 1855. Unlike most Bordeaux Grands Crus, Château Lagrange often produces more of its second label, Les Fiefs de Lagrange, than its Grand Vin. This decision, made each vintage, allows for increased quality of both wines.
Guided by the Suntory Philosophy of Excellence
Château Lagrange has increased its commitment to sustainability in all operations, in accordance with Suntory’s philosophy and its aim to preserve harmony with nature. The winery has also adopted a single plot approach as a result of a 2009 soil study. The vineyard was divided into 103 plots, harvested and vinified separately. Wines from each parcel are blind tasted every vintage to create the final blends.
Wine Tourism & Hospitality
Visitors are most welcome at Château Lagrange. Beyond tasting, wine enthusiasts and industry professionals can participate in blending workshops, cellar and vineyard tours, harvest experiences, and cooking classes. Private events can also be organized on site.
Looking to the Future
The U.S. is Château Lagrange’s #2 market worldwide. Matthieu Bordes, at the helm of Château Lagrange since 2007, sees the U.S. as an important and dynamic market for the winery in years to come.
