History:

This ancient estate was once the site of a military post complete with 13th century fortified keep. Four centuries later the land belonged to Raymond Peyraguey followed by Baron de Pichard and the property became known as Château Pichard-Peyraguey. Its present name derives from next owner, M Lafaurie (he also had a stake in Château d’Arche), who took over in 1794 and achieved much acclaim with his wine. In 1879 a small part of the estate – Château Clos Haut-Peyraguey – was sold off to the Grillon family, and by 1917 the remaining Lafaurie estate was under the control of Domaines Cordier, with notable success. In 1984, the latter became part of the Suez Group, which has invested boldly in the estate.
