What is a Grand Cru?

Bordeaux Grand Crus

The notion of Grands Crus appeared in the 17th century. It reflects the value of the soil and the knowledge of the winegrower of an estate. Over time, the values of certain wines and certain soils have been recognised by professionals and players in the world of wine (winegrowers, brokers and merchants).

Wine is the response of the earth to the sun. (Margaret FULLER)

In 1855, it was Napoleon III who asked each wine region to classify the wines that were presented at the Universal Exhibition in Paris.
In 1973, this classification was revised to promote Château Mouton Rothschild to the rank of 1st Grand Cru Classé.
