Throughout the world, the word Bordeaux is associated with wine. Since the 12th century, its wines have been exported and this reputation has never wavered. Many other regions and countries produce qualitative wines, often from Bordeaux’s historical grape varieties, but Bordeaux remains the undisputed benchmark.
Thanks to its history, the quality of the terroirs, the volumes produced (750 million bottles on average each year), the talents of its winegrowers, Bordeaux wine is a “modern classic”, which has been able to renew itself, invest and remain at the forefront of innovation. There is no general classification of all the wines, nevertheless some parts of the vineyard benefit from classifications that reward both the quality of the terroir and the wines produced: the classification of 1855, the classification of Graves/Pessac Léognan, the classification of Saint-Emilion and the classification of the Crus Bourgeois du Médoc, which will be renewed in 2020.
