    Situated in the village of Saint­-Julien, the vineyard of Chateau Lagrange represents 118 hectares in red vines, spread over two hills with the slopes directed towards the North and the South, in one block. The subsoil is of clay and limestone and the topsoil is of pebbles and gravel. The
    climate is temperate and oceanic.
    The rainy spring weather encouraged the budburst although we cannot say this was an early vintage. The flowering took place the driest week of the spring. 2016 was one of the hottest and driest summers ever! The harvest was late and long.

    In The Vineyard
    From October the 3rd to October the 24th 2016. Grapes are hand­picked into individual crates. A first selection is done by hand on whole bunches, and a second one grape by grape with an optical camera.
    Dark and purple colour, it has a very intense bouquet, with black cherries, crème de cassis and crushed violets. The palate has crisp acidity, quite tensile in the mouth and lively. One of the best success of Les Fiefs de Lagrange ever : a vibrant wine well balanced.
