Château Lafaurie Peyraguey

Lafaurie Peyraguey is a 1er Cru Classé, located in the appellation of Sauternes. The exact history of the Lafaurie-Peyraguey’s Estate is unclear, the earliest known records date back to the early 17th century, when Sieur Raymond Peyraguey was the land owner. However, in 1742 the Estate was acquired by Baron Nicolas-Pierre de Pichard, owner of Lafite and Coutet, who established the estate’s reputation as a great wine. In all, there are 41 hectares based on silica and gravel rich soils on deep limestone. The vineyards are heavily biased towards Semillon, with just 8% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle. The vines have an average age of 40 years and the whole harvest is fermented in French oak barriques.
