Included in the famous 1855 classification, Grand-Puy-Lacoste has had an important role to play in the history of Bordeaux wine since the early 16th century. It previously belonged to a family who contributed several members to the Bordeaux parliament. They fell in love with the magnificent gravel terroir and were responsible for establishing the wine’s fine reputation. They were followed by several other families: the Lacostes (who gave the estate its definitive name),
the Saint-Guirons, and the Saint-Legiers.
In 1930, the château’s history was marked by the arrival of Raymond Dupin, an unusual character and bon vivant who remained the owner until 1978. Shortly before his death, he sold Grand-Puy- Lacoste to the Borie family because he appreciated their rigour and devotion to producing fine great growth wine in the Médoc.
François-Xavier Borie, the present owner, is behind this superb estate’s renaissance. He has made major investments and constantly improved the quality of Grand-Puy-Lacoste in order to reflect all the finesse of its great Pauillac terroir.
