Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey

"Lafaurie-Peyraguey's full estate history stretches back more than seven centuries, with wine production at the property beginning sometime in the early 17th Century. More serious winemaking began in the middle of the 1700s and while initially regarded as a lowly ranked estate, within half a century Lafaurie-Peyraguey was one of the top names for Sauternes (even listed as a favorite of King Alphonso XII of Spain), and was ranked third place in the 1855 classification of Sauternes and Barsac directly behind Yquem and La Tour Blanche. Although once containing almost 30% Sauvignon Blanc, it is Semillon which now makes up nearly the entire estate vineyard, with just 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle now remaining. The vines have an average age of 40 years, and the harvest is done in multiple passes dictated by the slow spread of botrytis. The entire harvest is then fermented in French oak barriques, 30% of which are new each year. The wine is aged in barrique for between 18 and 30 months prior to bottling. "
