List of the Medoc Wineries in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification

The classification of Bordeaux wines was requested by Napoleon III just a few days before the World Expo of 1855 in Paris.  The list was assembled quickly to include  wineries of the Left Bank (including the Medoc, Sauternes, Barsac and Pessac). 

The estates were ranked by price and classified into five tiers. 

The classification of 1855 stands to this date and is not expected to change.   In the table below, you will find the Medoc Grand Cru Classe wineries.

You can use the Search and Sorting functions to find your favorite winery. Also, check out the map of Bordeaux chateaux.
