Château Lagarère

Bordeaux rouge

Château Lagarère lies within the municipal district of Langoiran, a small medieval town on the Garonne River, dominated by its 13th-century fortress. This historic town also boasts Gallo-Roman ruins and a 12th-century church.
The vineyard stretches out below the château on a large plain of clayey alluvial soil. The vines' red grapes produce fruity silky wines that have won the estate renown since the late 19th century.
