What are the specificities of Château Grand Puy Lacoste?
The history of the family estate began in the 16th century. Where does the name come from? Grand-Puy comes from the old expression "puy" which means "mound, small height". The vineyard of Grand-Puy Lacoste is situated on one of the hilltops where the premiers crus of Médoc were born. Since then, the estate has been managed from generation to generation by the same family until 1920. It is currently the Borie family which has been running the estate since 1978. The vineyard is located in Bages, south-west of Pauillac.

The vines are on average 40 years old, they are cultivated according to tradition, with ploughing and the minimum possible use of phytosanitary products. Vinification is carried out in stainless steel vats and the wine is aged in 70% new French oak barrels.
The estate also produces a Second Wine, "Lacoste Borie" which made its debut with the 1982 vintage.
