Meet the Winemaker (Episode 71): Bruno Eynard, Chateau Lagrange
Head winemaker at the historic Grand Cru winery, Chateau Lagrange in Bordeaux is Bruno Eynard. After 20 years working at Lagrange, Eynard is now at the helm of the business. Chateau Lagrange is the largest of all Grands Crus Classés with 157 hectares, of which there are 117 (290 acres) under vine and was one of the first chateaux to use new technology.
For Eynard, while classification is important, quality is paramount and it is this that the company intends to focus its future efforts on. Eynard explains how Chateau Lagrange has recently invested in new equipment and optical sorting technology to allow for greater precision. Looking into the future, Eynard hopes that they will find the necessary synergy between the terroir and vinification to continue to make good quality wines.
