Located in the heart of the Pauillac appellation, on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste took its present form in 1855, although it was built as early as the 16th century. Raymond Dupin owned the estate from 1930 to 1978. He then sold the property to the Borie family in 1978, who have since carried out numerous renovations. Today, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste is one of the most representative crus of the Pauillac appellation.
