Completely situated in the village of SaintJulien, 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 month of July is hot and dry, but never overhot. Cool temperatures and rainfall come back again in August. The Bordeaux miracle happens again from September 15th onwards. The hot days speed up thus ripening, drying the bunches. The nights are cool, finishing off the ripening of the polyphenols. First use of the small tanks introduced earlier this year.
