ABOUT THE WINE
Sold as Baron Saint Julien during the 18th Century when under the ownership of the Baron de Brane, Lagrange dates back to the middle ages, with definitive documentation going back to 1631. Originally one of the largest estates in the region, over the centuries Lagrange saw significant reductions in vineyard area, as plots were sold off to cover debts accrued by its owners. In 1983 the estate was purchased by the Japanese Suntory company, which proceeded to invest heavily in renovation and modernisation. A proportion of Petit Verdot was planted in 1988, white grapes were added in 1996; and the wines saw significant improvement, culminating in a number of exceptional vintages beginning in the year 2000. The second wine has been produced since 1985.

TASTING NOTES
Cherry blackcurrant, liquorice and pepper; cool and elegant on the palate, very refined for a second wine.

FOOD PAIRING
Ideal with pork dishes, which will not diminish the elegance of the wine.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Produced from vines with an average age of 32 years.
