Château de la Coste
Château Paveil de Luze is one of the oldest properties in the Médoc. Château de La Coste is produced in Margaux at the renowned Château Paveil de Luze, classified as a Cru Bourgeois. It has been in the hands of the famous Barons de Luze family for over a century. Chateau de La Coste is made using young vines and selected fruit from Chateau Paveil de Luze itself.
The Paveil vineyard dates back to the 17th century and belonged until the end of the 18th century to the Lords of Bretonneau, one of whose members married in the reign of Louis XV, a daughter of the Chevalier de Rauzan. In 1862, Baron Alfred de Luze bought this magnificent estate of 120 hectares and made its wines known throughout the world. The Siberian winter of 1956 destroyed much of the vineyard and in 1960, Baron Geoffroy de Luze decided to restore its luster to the property. It was with method and patience that the cure of youth was undertaken: replantation of the vineyard, restoration of the vat room, renovation of cellars.
Château de la Coste's vineyards are in the northern part of the Margaux appellation. Margaux boasts 21 châteaux with classified growth status and is known to produce elegant, delicate, and fragrant wines. This excellence is a result of the soil quality, the unique weather conditions, and natural drainage which exists in the vineyards.
Château de La Coste is the second wine of Château Paveil de Luze, one of the oldest properties in the Médoc. The Château Paveil de Luze is above all a family story, a story that lasts since 1862. In 2004, Frédéric de Luze took over the management of the estate and the whole family supports and surrounds it, upholding the notoriety of this beautiful property. With their two sisters, Marguerite and Catherine, and all their children, they write together a new page of their history.
