Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey 1st Grand Cru Classé (Lalique Edition)
A First Classified Growth of Sauternes in 1855, Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey is one of the most prestigious names in the iconic sweet wine appellation located south of the Bordeaux region. Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey has an exceptional terroir with a 30 hectare vineyard exclusively dedicated to the production of this First Classified Growth of Sauternes.
This bottle is based on one of the artist’s iconic designs and bearing the Lalique emblem. The engraving of “Femme et Raisins” is a piece created by René Lalique in 1928 in white press-molded glass on a silver background. The original was recessed into the woodwork of the wagons-lit of the “Côte d’Azur Pullman-Express” (Orient-Express), which started operating in 1929.
The “Femme et Raisins” has now been given a new lease of life in an exquisite collaboration with Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, starting with the 2013 Sauternes vintage 1er Grand Cru Classé.
The Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2019 reveals complex and elegant aromas. The nose displays a candied character, dominated by notes of citrus marmalade and citrus zest. On the palate, the Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey 2019 is rich and gourmet, ending in a tasty and refreshing finish.
