To produce the wine of Chateau Lafaurie Peyraguey, after vertical pressing, vinification takes place in new and used, French oak barrels. The wine is aged in an average of 60% new, French oak barrels for 18-20 months. The amount of new oak and time in the bottle varies, depending on the character and quality of the vintage.

A 1er Grand Cru Classe property of 40 hectares, dating back to the 13th century, Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey is located in the heart of the Sauternes region, on high ground just outside the village of Bommes. In 400 years of history this Chateau has had very few owners. Silvio Denz acquired it in February 2014, and swiftly hired Sauternes and white wines consultant Denis Dubourdieu. Together they restricted yields, and focused the the Grand Vin on only the best terroirs of the 1855 classification, L'Enclos  and  Maisons Rouges', sited on soils composed of quaternary deposited here over 600,000 years on a limestone substrate. Two distinct terroirs, on hills between the property and Chateau d'Yquem, have been defined to produce white wines: Le Lys de Lafaurie Peyraguey and Femme et Raisins arrived with the 2014 vintage. Mario Botter has completely redesigned the cellars so they can now vinify each parcel separately to understand more about the terroir. All labels and bottles were given a new life with the incorporation of a Rene Lalique design created in 1928. Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey is unquestionably one of the top half dozen estates in Sauternes.
