Lafaurie-Peyraguey is located on an upper gravel terrace 70 metres above sea level in Sauternes.
The L’Enclos and Maisons Rouges plots represent the historic heart of the estate’s terroir , consisting of gravel from the Quaternary period, deposited over 600,000 years ago on a limestone substratum.
The winemaking facilities benefit from specially-adapted equipment conforming to the latest environmental and regulatory standards and feature fully air-conditioned cellars with controlled humidity.
Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey reflects Silvio Denz’s passionate devotion to his work. He makes outstanding engraved bottles, inspired by work of René Lalique.
“Femme at Raisins”, created in 1928, was engraved in the woodwork of Pullman-Express sleeping cars, which were put into service in 1929. This engraving has appeared on Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey bottles from 2013 vintage onwards.
