Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste | Emeline Borie
Château Grand-Puy owes its name to its location on a “puy”, or “hill”, and the Lacoste family forged relations with the estate owner around the time the 1855 classification was established.
The estate’s terroir, consisting of a single block of vines, overlooking the town of Pauillac, benefits from an outstanding hilly terrain and favourable microclimate influenced by the nearby Gironde Estuary.
The château reigns over a sea of vines. Included in the famous 1855 classification, Grand-Puy-Lacoste has played an important role in the history of Bordeaux wine since the early 16th century. Several families have taken over direction of the estate including the Lacostes and Raymond Dupins who handed it over to the Borie family in 1978.
Estate owner and manager François-Xavier Borie completely renovated the buildings to help express the unique qualities of the magnificent terroir. This great growth estate produces quintessential Pauillac wines with powerful, velvety tannin.
