(From 2003 Vintage) Chateau Grand-Puy-Lacoste is a 125-acre estate in the Pauillac appellation. It is a Fifth Growth estate according to the 1855 Bordeaux classification. Several centuries ago this estate and Chateau Grand-Puy Ducasse were one estate, but in the 18th century part of the original estate was sold to a Pierre Ducasse, and the remaining vineyards changed names as daughters of owners married. Today Grand-Puy-Lacoste is owned by the Jean-Eugene Borie family. The family has modernized the estate and its wines are now considered among the leading wines of Pauillac.
