Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste

The winery is located in the municipality Pauillac in the eponymous community appellation in Médoc ( Bordeaux ). The origin dates back to the 16th century, since then it was for a long time in the possession of the eponymous family Lacoste and their descendants. The name part Grand-Puy (Big Mountain) refers to a district. The château was built around 1850. In the Bordeaux Classification 1855 it received the fifth rank (Cinquième Cru Classé). In 1932 it was owned by Raymond Dupin. After several catastrophic years and the Second World War (1939-1945), he sold the property in 1978 to François-Xavier Borie, who renovated the battered Château, as well as made improvements in the cellar technology. The property is now managed under the company name "Domaines François-Xavier Borie" by François-Xavier Borie. The vineyards cover 45 hectares of vineyards that with Cabernet Sauvignon (75%), Merlot (20%) and Cabernet Franc (5%) are planted. The extremely long-lived red wine matures for 18 to 20 months in one-third new barriques. The second wine is called "Lacoste-Borie".
