Ch Lafaurie Peyraguey
The Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey history and reputation are inextricably bound up with those of the Sauternes appellation. Lafaurie-Peyraguey is located in the heart of the Sauternes region, just outside the village of Bommes, next to Chateau d’Yquem.
Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey has been top-ranked as a Premier Grand Cru Classe ever since 1855. Over the years, Lafaurie-Peyraguey has never failed to live up to expectations and many legendary vintages have been produced under this label. This noble Sauternes, which is both complex and well balanced, impresses with its impeccable play of sweet and sour flavours. Its ageing potential is unlimited and, depending on vintage, it can sometimes be kept for well over 100 years.
Silvio Denz, the current owner, decided to invest in this prestigious Sauternes vineyard at a time when Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey is among the finest properties in the region, with a well-maintained vineyard, a modern, high-tech winery, an expert team taking meticulous care of the vines, and a recently renovated chateau.
