Château Lagrange is a temple in the midst of vines, reigning over an undulating sea of vegetation devoted to Saint-Julien, a happy martyr judging from its oenological reputation. Words alone don't do justice to the splendour of this property. Its rectilinear alley of white pebbles is in striking contrast to this countryside of curving outcrops. Attention for detail is not lost on the Suntory company, owner of the estate: washed stone, the continuous trace of a rake over gravel, all contributions to the Zen atmosphere of the garden. The modern cellar containing all that a great wine could ask for is directed by Bruno Eynard, who oversees the ripeness of the fruit and the selection of the wines with an exacting eye.
