About Chateau Lagrange

It was 1983 and Chateau Lagrange had been in a rut for a half century. Vintage after vintage had been smashed by critics, prices were falling, and its Third Growth status was nowhere to be seen. Then, from halfway across the world, Japanese liquor conglomerate Suntory swept away the rust--literally replacing the outdated cellar and replanting the vineyard--and got Chateau Lagrange back on its feet.

Expert Reviews

88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2004

(includes 60% cabernet sauvignon, the highest percentage to that point under Ducasse, except for the 1984 vintage, when the estate's merlot was severely affected by coulure Medium ruby-red. Black plum and currant aromas, with licorice, tar and herbs. Sweeter than the '93 on entry but still shows good spine and a touch of cabernet austerity. Finishes firmly tannic and a bit tough. This has always been a bit stiff, notes Ducasse, and will probably still be austere when the tannins fade. From a very wet year in which the merlot was picked early to avoid rot.
