Domaine de Saint Guirons - François-Xavier Borie -Pauillac
François-Xavier Borie has led the fortunes of Grand-Puy-Lacoste, working to restore its glory and staying true to its spirit. Domaine de Saint Guirons belongs to Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste. François-Xavier Borie has led the estate since taking over in 1978, benefiting enormously from the experience of working alongside his father. As determined, demanding and diligent as Jean-Eugène, François-Xavier has elevated Grand-Puy-Lacoste to the level of a "great Pauillac" and ensured that it retains that status. With his wife Marie-Hélène, he lives at the chateau in the Médoc. There they receive guests in a spirit of refined conviviality. In the grounds, three statues of cranes represent their three children, the next generation who will manage the estate. These large birds look to the horizon, a symbol of the future and the timelessness of the property. This symbol can be found in the cellars with the statues of the "three guards."
