Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey
Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey dates back to the 13th century when it was originally built as a fortress from the old stones of the nearby village of Bommes. The first known and recorded wine making activities began in 1618 when Sieur Raymond Peyraguey purchased the property and moved to Sauternes. As was the tradition in those days, he lent his name to the estate and it was called Château Peyraguey. The estate became Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey over a decade later when Pierre Lafaurie purchased the estate and added his own name to the label. He also expanded the estate, planting more vineyards. His efforts to establish the château with a reputation for excellence were rewarded when Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey was ranked in third place in the 1855 Classification of Sauternes and Barsac, just behind Château d’Yquem and Château La Tour Blanche. It’s a Premier Cru Classé, the second highest ranking after Château d’Yquem was so highly rated that it received its own ranking as Premier Cru Superieur.
