Lafaurie-Peyraguey

France - Bordeaux 


Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey is a Premier Cru Classé wine estate in the Sauternes appellation, south of Bordeaux city. The château is located on a hill just outside the historic commune of Bommes, and dates back to the 13th Century. It became a wine estate in 1618, and has been owned by Swiss businessman Silvio Denz since 2014.
The château's 36-hectare estate neighbors Château d'Yquem, which lies roughly a kilometer to the southeast. Châteaux Rayne Vigneau and Sigalas-Rabaud lie to the immediate southwest and northwest respecitvely.
Lafaurie-Peyraguey's vineyards are composed of silica-gravel and clay-gravel soils and planted to 93 percent Sémillon, six percent Sauvignon Blanc, and one percent Muscadelle. The estate's vines average 40 years old, although the oldest date back to 1926.

The château gets its name from two historic owners – the Peyraguey family who gave their name to the property in the 17th Century and later, Pierre Lafaurie, who acquired the estate in the French Revolution. In 1855, it gained Premier Cru Classé status in the classification of Sauternes and Barsac.
Numerous owners come and go over the centuries, including the merchant house and négociant, Cordier.

The French-based multinational Suez Group acquired the property in the mid-1980s and renovated the building, cellars and vineyards over the turn of the century, before Denz took over in 2014.
