CHATEAU LAFAURIE PEYRAGUEY
This Sauternes château is stunning visually, constructed in the 18th Century in a Byzantine-Hispanic style, with the outer wall and main gate dating as far back as the 13th Century, reflecting its days serving as a fortress. The name is a combination of the first known owners, the Peyraguey family, and the Laufauries, who purchased it in 1796.
A Premier Grand Cru Classé, the 41 hectares of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle vines are tended with great care, with the soil ploughed and the use of chemical sprays increasingly reduced. In 2014 it was bought from the GDF Suez Company by Silvio Denz, the owner of numerous châteaux and a man known for his spare-no-expense approach.
