Chateau La Grangere 1998 - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
The Chateau Grangère, a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, is one of four areas that SCEA has the Bousquet led by Patrice Bigou, the others being St. Julian castles and Virecourt-Conté Bordeaux Supérieur and The Mill Grangère, also a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. The vineyards cover six hectares are under conversion to organic farming, for friendly production environment and that best expresses the terroir. The planting honored the owner, Merlot, which represents 3 quarters of the vineyards, accompanied by his two faithful lieutenants, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the first accounting for 20% and 5% for the second. The wines are made following traditional methods but with the techniques and the latest equipment, including thermoregulation, or barrels of new wood. An ambition, a philosophy in place? Produce wines that customers take as much pleasure to drink their creators to conceive.

A high quality vintage. A hot, dry climate has achieved a perfect ripeness of grapes with thick skins that have protected them during torrential rains in September. The great castles, practicing a rigorous selection process, produced fine wines, elegant and complex. The Pomerol and Saint-Emilion powerful and velvety wine. Graves and Margaux have more fruit and finesse than other vintages. The sweet, less complete than in 1997, are generally fruity and elegant.
