For Bordeaux wine lovers, it is important to know the Cru Bourgeois classification. Originally 444 estates from the Medoc were classified in 1932 when it was first created, versus 249 today. Unlike the 1855 classification, the Cru Bourgeois was revised every year and based on the result of blind wine tastings, it is the specific wine that is classified, not the chateau or vineyard. At their best, there are Cru Bourgeois estates that compete with much more expensive Bordeaux chateaux.
Starting with the 2018 vintage, which was released in 2020, Cru Bourgeois estates are now allowed to be classified into 3 different levels of quality, including 179 Crus Bourgeois, 56 Crus Bourgeois Superieurs and 14 Crus Bourgeois Exceptionnels. Plus instead of reclassifying their wines every year, the new classification remains in place for 5 years (2018-22).
