Winemakers Note

Created in 1983, “les Fiefs de Lagrange” is so much more than a second wine. Produced from young vines (with an average age of 30 years) and planted on fine gravel soils for the Cabernet Sauvignon and clay for certain Merlots. Harvest Grapes are hand-­picked into individual crates A first selection is done by hand on whole bunches, and a second one grape by grape with an optical camera Vinification The contents of vats are selected according to the grape varieties, the age of the vines, the « terroir » and the maturity 220 hl stainless steel vats with thermo regulation Vinification at 26-­28 °C during 15 to 22 days Moderate pumping-­over every day, or delestage or pigeage Malo lactic fermentation through co inoculation Ageing Blending in January Maturation for 13 months. 20 % of new oak barrels Fining in barrel with fresh egg-­whites Final blending before bottling Tasting note As in the Château Lagrange Grand Vin, black and red fruit aromas predominate. The tangy fresh entry is followed by an ample mid­palate and a nice long finish. All the ingredients are there to allow an excellent ageing in the cellar for the more patient wine lovers too.
