,Bordeaux vineyard is covering almost all the Gironde department is known for the excellent environment for growing wines.

On the right bank, the regions of Blaye-Libournais and Entre-Deux-Mers. On the left bank, Graves, Medoc and Sauterne.
Chateau Lagrange is located in Bordeaux's sub-region of Saint-Julien
,Saint-Julien is a small but important appellation of the Haut-Medoc district of Bordeaux. Its reputation is based on its status as a reliable source of consistently elegant, age-worthy wines. Sandwiched between the more famous appellations of Pauillac and Margaux, Saint-Julien is sometimes unfairly overlooked because it does not have a first-growth chateau. Saint-Julien makes up for its lack of first-growth chateaux by being home to 11 classed growths, which generate three-quarters of the appellation's output. Five of these are highly rated second growths: Chateaux Leoville Las Cases, Leoville Poyferre, Leoville Barton, Gruaud-Larose and Ducru-Beaucaillou. The first three were once a single estate, which would have been extremely large for its time. Created in 1936 – like so many Bordeaux wine regulations – the appellation laws for Saint-Julien state that its wines must be made from grapes grown in the commune of Saint-Julien Beychevelle, or very specific parts of the communes of Cussac and Saint-Laurent.
One of the most cultivated grape variety in the world. Often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it is grown in nearly every wine producing country, thanks to its hardy constitution. It can be identified by its thick skin and some low yields. In a blend, Cabernet-Sauvignon brings tannins, structure and acidity, which are the keys to a perfectaging process. Californian Nappa Valley has espacially well worked this varietal, which is the main factor of its extrordinary recognition and success. Known for its vegetal flavors such as mint and eucalyptus, Cabernet Sauvignon can turn a wine with herbaceous dominances if harvested too green.
It is the most representative grape of Bordeaux, covering 60% of the vineyard. It is found mainly in the Libournais, on the "right bank" of the Garonne, especially in Saint Emilion and Pomerol. This grape is easily exportable thanks to its adaptability to different soils. It matures very quickly on gravelly soils, but it is clay soils of Pomerol and Saint-Emilion that fit it best. There, the fruit is expressed all in delicacy, offering floral notes of violet, peony, and of black and red fruits. Among all Bordeaux varieties, Merlot is the one which offers roundness and smoothness to the wine. Over time, these flavors evolve towards undergrowth aromas, marked by mushrooms, truffles, tobacco and even old leather.
is a red-wine grape whose small, thick-skinned berries are valued for their high anthocyanins and tannins levels.The name Petit Verdot is particularly descriptive of the variety's characteristics. "Petit" is refering to the small size of the berries, and "Verdot" designates roughly its tendancy to produce unrippened and atrophied fruits in cool years. The 1960 and '70s marked the beginning of a new chapter in Petit Verdot's history: many Petit Verdot vines were uprooted, to be replaced with more reliable, more fashionable varieties. Wine consumers preferences were changing, in favor of plump, fruity Merlot and regal, structured Cabernet Sauvignon. Traditionally, the variety has played a small role in the classic blends of Bordeaux, but varietal Petit Verdot wines are now appearing in many regions of southern Europe, the Americas and Australia.It is added to blend to give a deep dark colour.
