Les Fiefs de Lagrange 2016
- Bordeaux,St Julien
- Cabernet Sauvignon,Merlot
Dark and purple color, it has a very intense bouquet, with pure black cherry, crème de cassis and crushed violets. The palate has crisp acidity, quite tensile in the mouth and lively. One of the best successes of Les Fiefs de Lagrange ever: a vibrant wine well balanced. - Winemaker's Notes
A place of great agricultural activity even back in Gallo-Roman times : from the Gallo-Roman VILLA RUSTICA to the « GRANGIA » in the Middle Ages which was to give the estate its name.
Lagrange discovers an early winegrowing vocation thanks to the Templars who join together two domains : – The « maison noble de Lagrange de Monteil » to the West joins the « Tenure of Pellecalhus » (meaning « peeled stone ») to the East. In the present-day vineyard, the names of two vine plots bear witness to this era, « l’Hôpital » and « La Chapelle »; – Lagrange becomes the largest wine producing estate in the Médoc.
But the history of the different owners cannot be reconstructed until after 1631.
