Established as a Premier Grand Cru Classé in 1855, this prestigious estate has been renovated by Maison Lalique, who has breathed refinement and modernity into the space, creating a haven of peace where the worlds of crystal and wine intertwine.
A sense of detail and harmony prevails across two floors. Taking the broad staircase, you will discover a sumptuous library in the centre of the floor, home to a collection of Lalique decanters. This continues outside onto a terrace overlooking a stone arena. Far from the hum of the city, this relaxing space is available for full private hire upon request. Lalique works also stand on display in shared areas. The understated setting highlights the timeless beauty of the brand’s creations, such as the large crystal panels installed in the lobby.
In the greatest tradition of prestige hotels, every guest is greeted by the master of the house who assists them throughout their stay. A highly personalised service is offered in line with guests’ requirements so as to ensure a unique experience for everyone at Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey.
The suites are structured with wooden alcoves and punctuated with touches of colour that remind guests of wine’s multi-coloured nature. Each has its own particular style: the first, with its splendid Champs-Elysées chandelier, has a wonderfully high ceiling; the second, located in the medieval tower, contains a reading lounge; and the third, a duplex room, offers views of the ancient porch and the L’Enclos plot of land, the historic heart of the great Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey terroir.
Fully deserving of a Michelin star, the cuisine that the chef, Jérôme Schilling, serves in the glass-walled restaurant is sublime, enhanced at dinner by the sun setting over the vineyards around you.
At the heart of Sauternes, visit Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey and discover Premier Grand Cru Classé wines from the cellars and visit the Chapel, entirely decorated by Lalique. During this visit, you discover the history of Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, the territory of Sauternes, its viticulture and the secret of its sweet wines.
