Ch Grand Puy Lacoste
François-Xavier Borie has directed the estate since its acquisition in 1978, benefitting greatly from the experience of working beside his father. François-Xavier has raised Grand-Puy-Lacoste to the level of a "great Pauillac" and ensures that it maintains that status.
Grand-Puy-Lacoste is situated in the terroir of Pauillac, one of the Médoc's six communal appellations along the Gironde estuary's left bank. Grand-Puy-Lacoste enjoys an exceptional terroir. The estate of Grand-Puy-Lacoste comprises 90 hectares, 58 of which are planted with vines around the Chateau. The vines are planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon is the ideal noble grape variety, forming the backbone of Grand-Puy-Lacoste's wines.
