    Dark red-ruby. Highly perfumed, refined aromas of red cherry, raspberry eau de vie , minerals and rose petal, complicated by sweet spices. Bright and clean in the mouth, with lively acidity lifting the red fruit and spicy floral flavors at the back. Finishes with repeating notes of juicy red berries and minerals. Strange as it may seem in a vintage of light wines like 2013, this Lagrange seems to have a deeper nose and more density than usual.

  • Believed to have once been home to an order of the Knights Templar in the 14th century, the Bordeaux chateau was acquired by Baron de Brane, of Mouton and Brane-Cantenac fame, before being turned over in the late 18th century to Napoleon's finance minister, who significantly expanded the vineyard. However, it wasn't until a century later that Lagrange wines achieved superior quality. The Cendoya family, who had owned the estate since 1925, sold it off to the Japanese wine and spirits conglomerate Suntory. Under government recommendation, Suntory spent $4 million on renovations ($10 million to date) under the supervision of winemaker Marcel Ducasse, former apprentice to Professor Peynaud.

    The estate's second wine is called Les Fiefs de Lagrange.
