Located on the site of the famous Lafaurie Peyraquey, the Premier Grand Cru Classé vineyard celebrates an anniversary. And not just any old anniversary, but the 400th one! The company Lalique, which is considered to be the ultimate master of glass art, was involved in the celebration of this milestone. Lalique is famous for the production of perfume bottles, vases, jewelry and ornaments, among other things. For this occasion, they created a unique commemorative barrel made entirely of top-quality crystal. The luxury translucent barrel is exceptional not only for the workmanship or material, but also for the authentic monogram with the inscription “Femme et Raisins,” - woman and grapes.
"This extraordinary piece, created at the Lalique factory, demonstrates the outstanding skills and know-how of our glassmakers and the standards of excellence we strive for,"
said Silvio Denz, Chairman and CEO of Lalique. Currently, this exceptional work of glassmaking mastery is displayed in the main hall of the Hotel & Restaurant Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey. Have you already put this magical place in France in your GPS?
