Help with Bordeaux "second wine"

I was in Paris about a year and a half ago and had an really good bottle of Bordeaux wine at the bar at the Hotel Crillon. I wrote down the name on a piece of paper and took it to several wine shops in Paris so I could buy a bottle to bring home, but no one had the wine. It appeared to me that the winery name was Le Petit Lousteau. When I got back to the U.S. I tried to search for this name on the internet, but didn't come up with much (and what little did come up was exclusively in French...je ne comprends pas). Just today I was bored and tried again, and the search brought up an article about Bordeaux. It did have Le Petit Lousteau buried in the text, it read that it was a "second wine" for Château Lousteauneuf, Cru Bourgeois. I don't know if this information helps me at all in my search for this wine, but can someone explain to me what this means?
