The Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste stands guard at the entrance to the prestigious Pauillac appellation. Its name refers to its privileged location on the heights of the appellation, at the top of a Puy, the Lacoste family being its owners in 1855 when it attained the title of Fifth Grand Cru Classé during the famous classification of Médoc wines for the Paris World Fair.
In 1978, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste entered the fold of the Borie family. Thanks to numerous technical renovations, the wines today reflect the full potential of the terroir from which they are made.
The vineyard of Domaine is located on deep gravelly hilltops, and reaches an area of 62 hectares of vines, planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The wines are aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 75% of which are new.
Lacoste-Borie is the Second wine of the property, produced with young vines and with the same care as its elder.
The Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste produces wines like Pauillac, they are powerful but controlled, with elegant tannins and offer a beautiful aromatic depth.
