- Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, one of the oldest château in Sauternes, and now a luxury boutique hotel and a gastronomic restaurant as well.
- Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey dates back to the 13th century when it was originally built as a fortress from the old stones of the nearby village of Bommes.
- The first known and recorded wine making activities began in 1618 when Sieur Raymond Peyraguey purchased the property and moved to Sauternes.
- Sauternes is so special because there is no where else on earth where conditions come together to create a such a wine.
- It’s the fungus created by the micro-climate of the Garonne and Ceron Rivers, where warm and cool waters create a mist that washes over the grapes in the cool fall mornings.
- A meal at Restaurant Lalique is more than a meal; it’s a gastronomic experience. And one you’ll savor the memory of for a long time to come.

In the heart of Sauternes, visit the Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey, property of 36 hectares, its enclosure, historical terroir of the great wine, Premier Grand Cru Classé, its cellars and its chapel, entirely decorated by Lalique.
A unique and recognizable style La Maison Lalique, iconic brand of French art de vivre, emblem of absolute refinement, declines its universe in luxury hotel addresses. After La Villa René Lalique in 2015 , stamped Relais & Châteaux, and Château Hochberg by Lalique in 2016, both located in Wingen-sur-Moder in Alsace, the third establishment of a sumptuous hotel-restaurant in Sauternes, in the most great terroir of Classified Crus. The Hotel & Restaurant Lalique opens its doors June 23, 2018 on the occasion of the 400 years of Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey. On the initiative of Silvio Denz, president and CEO of Lalique, this address is a convergence of four worlds: wine, crystal, gastronomy, hospitality. Everything comes together in terms of art and meaning; there are no other rules except know-how, demand, passion. The same aim, too, the emotion.
The simplicity of the main architectural lines is offset by the refinement of the furniture, the sophistication of the accessories. The vine has inspired a multitude of Lalique crystal pieces that are enclosed in the panels, sofas, dressers, bedside tables, bed frames, mirrors. In the bathrooms of beige marble, we find the bunches of grapes engraved on the handles of the taps, supreme distinction … The photos of Aerni, Swiss artist passionate about Sauternes are still tribute to the golden wine of Lafaurie-Peyraguey, whose the variegated colors, from straw yellow to amber, vary according to the age of the vintage.
A haven of peace for guests in search of discretion. A stage of charm to taste the serenity of a landscape and get lost in all the nuances of the vine. On two floors, a sense of detail and harmony. By taking the wide staircase, we discover in the heart of the floor a sumptuous library housing a collection of books dealing with topics combining expertise and savoir-vivre à la française: the history of Sauternes and Bordeaux wines, the vineyard , René Lalique and his works. It is extended outside by a terrace overlooking a stone arena. A drink service is provided all day. In the common areas, Lalique works are elegantly staged. The sober scenography highlights the timeless beauty of the brand’s creations, such as the large crystal panels installed in the lobby.

The suites are structured by wooden alcoves and punctuated by some colorful touches recalling the polychromy of the wine. Each has its own typicality: the first, with a splendid chandelier Champs-Elysées, enjoys a high ceiling; the second, located in the medieval tower, houses a reading room; the third, crossing duplex, offers a view of the ancient porch and the parcel of Enclos, historic heart of the great terroir of Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey.
We love good food, so much so that food can make or break a holiday, and the hotel offers great dining. Eden Roc’s Asian-Peruvian Restaurant rivalled any high-end London experience in terms of flavour and flair, and the ocean-front Palapa made for relaxed family dining from grilled lobster to pasta dishes. All the restaurants had good, and reasonably priced, children’s menus as well. A meal at Restaurant Lalique is more than a meal; it’s a gastronomic experience. And one you’ll savor the memory of for a long time to come. At the helm is chef Jérôme Schilling. He hails from France’s Alsace and his resume is impressive, working under top chefs such as Joël Robuchon and Roger Vergé. He uses fresh, seasonal ingredients. And he works alongside producers to only use France’s best ingredients, many of which come right here from the region like caviar from Aquitaine, Bazas beef and Marmande tomatoes. He also integrates the very essence of the vineyard in to his cooking, using grape must to tenderize meats and vine cuttings for the fire.
The Table Setting
Benefiting greatly from the refinement and know-how of Maison Lalique, the table setting is adorned with a thousand delicacies: symphony of crystal and porcelain, pendants and selected flowers. Beautifully set by Patrice Blondit, Restaurant Manager, and his team, the table first delighted the eyes: tablecloths in fine fabrics, glasses, carafes, corkscrews of the 100 Points range. Customers discover other creations of the famous glassware made for the hotel-restaurant with large partner houses: porcelain plates Fürstenberg, Christofle napkin rings inlaid with crystal pieces ” Raisins “, pepper shakers and salt shaker Peugeot Flavors, perfect replicas of those co-signed by René Lalique and Peugeot in 1924.
From this large 60 m² cozy lounge, punctuated with elegant floral compositions, emanates elegant luxury. With its vast fireplace, sofas, armchairs and crystal lamps, the place offers a cozy hideaway. In the summer, the living room invites itself outside, in the moving square courtyard of stones. In the window, the carafes that Lalique has made in partnership with major liquor houses, such as The Macallan (whiskey), Hardy (cognac), Beluga (vodka) or Boss (tequila).
There are bikes to borrow to ride through the countryside and wine tastings are held. Transfers to and from the airport are done in a Porsche Panamera. Planned for 2020 is a spa courtesy of architect Mario Botta, and some further rooms.
