The vineyard of Clos Haut-Peyraguey, nestled at the highest point of the plateau of Bommes in Sauternes region is at the heart of the Premiers Crus Classés in 1855. It sits opposite to the Chateau d'Yquem, and its immediate neighbors are called Rayne-Vigneau or Chateau Guiraud. This ancient barony has survived the centuries since its first harvest in 1618, enjoying a unique terroir and climatic conditions combined with an ancestral know-how enabling it to make its grapes play a symphony of excellence giving a unique and prestigious golden wine : the Sauternes of Clos Haut-Peyraguey. When classified in 1855, the estate was called Chateau Peyraguey. In 1879 the estate is split in two. Part is called Lafaurie-Peyraguey in tribute to Mr. Lafaurie (former owner) who had given him fame. The highest land at the top of the Bommes hill will be named Clos Haut-Peyraguey.
