An exceptional place
A modern philosophy of life

Beyond this classed growth’s great quality there is much more to be discovered: beautiful surroundings, centuries of experience, a dedication to quality passed down through generations and the warm welcome of family passionate about winemaking…

A living home
A modern spirit

Proudly seated among its vines, Grand-Puy-Lacoste—with its surrounding buildings—is the very model of a classic Bordeaux estate. The château extends the warmest of welcomes to clients and connoisseurs from France and beyond who come to taste its wines.

Bequeathed over several centuries
One of the oldest estates in the Médoc

The history of Grand-Puy-Lacoste is fascinating in many ways. It is a family saga going back to the 16th century.

The name Grand-Puy, already mentioned in documents from the Middle Ages, comes from the ancient term “puy” which means “hillock, small height”. True to its name, the vineyard sits on outcrops with a terroir similar to that of the Médoc’s first growths. From Since the 16th century the property remained attached to a single family from generation to generation, in a direct line through marriage until 1920, before connecting with another family in 1978—the Borie.
