The wine of this Château has already improved considerably since Silvio Denz became the owner. At the head of the vineyard is Eric Larramona. The yields are lower and come only from the 17 best plots in the vineyard. With a view to respecting the environment, the estate makes it a point of honour to use integrated viticulture without any chemical herbicides. Thanks to the efforts of the different owners, the cru has become a sure value of the appellation.
With a yield of around 18 hl/ha depending on the vintage, and traditional maturing for 18 to 20 months in barrels, the estate produces 66,000 bottles a year of château Lafaurie-Peyraguey. With less than 40% of the harvest destined for the blending of its Grand Vin, the estate also produces a second wine, La Chapelle de Lafaurie-Peyraguey, with 24,000 bottles a year.
