Château Lagrange is a much-beloved third growth in Saint-Julien, lying to the west of the appellation, beyond Château Gruaud-Larose. Since 1983, Japanese ownership has provided the investment and vision to make Lagrange one of the consistently best performing châteaux among the third growths. The vast vineyard of Lagrange spreads over 115 hectares, and unusually for Saint-Julien, it is planted with both red and white varieties. The estate lies on two hills and has a clay and limestone subsoil with a topsoil of pebbles and gravel. Pruning and thinning of extra grapes keeps production down and ensures only the best grapes are used.
