Winemakers Note

Château Lagrange, the quest for excellence Perched on two beautiful Gunzian gravel ridges, Lagrange’s 118-hectare vineyard spreads over an impressive single block in the Saint-Julien appellation. For decades now the uncompromising quest for excellence has been a true philosophy here, thanks to an exceptional terroir and the team’s innovative and precise approach. Year after year, the traditional painstaking vine-care and plot-by-plot vinification give birth to an elegant, powerful wine with wonderful ageing potential. 2021 vintage, a window open onto the past This 2021 vintage will have reminded the younger generations that Bordeaux has a temperate oceanic climate where nothing can be taken for granted: indeed it is part of the magic of our unique Terroir. This year, we followed in the footsteps of the people who were at the very origin of those great wines that have made the reputation of Bordeaux. All this with the difference that experience, new knowledge, techniques and yield management are now better mastered and an essential advantage in the quest for quality. This evolution is directly perceptible in our wines today. 2021 will be remembered as the year of humility, of perseverance and of hope. It was a challenging and enriching journey : Never give up, even near the finish line when all is still left to play for ! The balance and harmony of the 2021 vintage reminds us somewhat of the wines produced in the 2000s, with a higher quality in the tannic framework and the aromatic precision. Like a window open onto the past, the 2021 will be our neo-retro vintage par excellence ! Tasting note Dark red colour with a crimson tint. Aromatic notes of red fruit, such as strawberry or raspberry. The attack is supple and fleshy. With 84% of Cabernet-Sauvignon in the blend (a new estate record!), the tannic structure is powerful yet elegant. The harmony that reigns throughout promises a large drinking window.
