The 1855 Classification
The 1855 Classification was ceated to present the most famous Bordeaux
wines at the Paris Universal exhibition. Yhe responsibility for drawing
it up was given by the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce to the "Bordeaux
Trade Brokers". The idea was to establish a classification based on
many years of trade experience, which was the recognition for each
estate of its terroir and reputation. It is a prestigious recognition,
and subsequent owners have always upheld the honour bestowed on them in
1855. They have endeavoured to maintain and even improve the quality of
the wines that earned them this aknowledgment.
