Lagrange is a historic estate of considerable size (118 hectares of vines), the first flowering of which was between 1842 and 1875, when it was owned by Count Duchâtel, Minister of the Interior of King Louis Philippe. It was classified as 3rd Cru Classé in 1855.
Since the 1983 vintage, when a new owner bought the estate, Château Lagrange has been in impressive shape and has always been a good buy. You can tell this very well from the labels that were newly introduced at the time.

2018 produced one of the best wines in the history of this winery, this vintage is described as a stylistic mixture of 2009 and 2016. This wine reminds of black cherries, plums and ripe cassis. On the palate it is incredibly rich, enormously concentrated and has a silky density that has never been seen here before. This masterpiece is worth Parker's Wine Advocate 93-95 + points, the Wine Spectator 93-96 / 100.
