Maison Lalique, crown jewel of the French crystal industry and an international lifestyle icon is adding to its world of prestige hotel addresses.
After Villa René Lalique in 2015 (a member of the Relais & Châteaux collection and five-star hotel) and Château Hochberg by Lalique in 2016, both located in Alsace, the third property is a sumptuous hotel and restaurant in the Sauternes region, near Bordeaux, where we can find the greatest concentration of first-growth terroirs (Premiers Grands Crus Classés).
On the initiative of Silvio Denz, Chairman and CEO of Lalique, a hotel & restaurant opened its doors in June 2018 to celebrate Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey’s 400th anniversary.
Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey received the Relais & Châteaux certification just two months after opening and was awarded five stars in November 2018 allowing the hotel to join the exclusive circle of luxury establishments in the region.
Chef Jérôme Schilling and the Lalique restaurant at Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey have been awarded 1 star in the Guide Michelin in January 2019. The award is a notable success, coming only six months after the opening of this latest jewel in Lalique’s crown. It is also a first for Sauternes – the region’s first and only Michelin-starred restaurant.
The new venture will see four worlds converge: wine, crystal, gastronomy and hospitality, all combining to serve art and the senses. The only rules are those of savoir-faire, rigour and passion – with emotional engagement as their common purpose.
Visit and wine tasting
Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey opens its doors for visitors to enjoy tours and tastings every day.
The programme includes food and wine pairings and vertical tastings to explore the world of Lafaurie-Peyraguey through its wines. Visiting the estate is an opportunity to discover all the Château’s wine activities, from the vat house to the cellars where the LALIQUE barrique, unique piece, is exposed via the estate’s chapel, nestled at the heart of the chateau and entirely redecorated by Lalique.
