Classified Third Growth Bordeaux Chateau Lagrange was acquired by the Japanese group, Suntory in 1983. Marcel Ducasse was then recruited along with Kenji Suzuta to undertake the complete restructuring of the vineyard and a spectacular renovation of the whole estate. A second phase of investments began with the 2008 vintage, offering Lagrange the technical means to follow its ambitions: The production of refined, elegant and expressive wines, in the best Saint-Julien style. There has also been an evolution of production methods towards a greater awareness of the environment and a reduction of ecological impact on the property. 2010 was an outstanding vintage and this wine was one of the best the Chateau has produced. 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot, James Suckling scored it 96 points and said "Loads of tension and form. It can be cellared for decades, but it's balanced and beautiful already. Lots of blueberry, licorice and blackberry character. Try in 2018." Wine Enthusiast Magazine gave it 93 points saying "The wine is rich and ripe, with just the right amount of tannic structure for the fruit."
