The commune of St-Emilion, in Bordeaux, was first classified in 1955, a hundred years after the 1855 classification of the Medoc. The classification is updated every ten years and is based on tasting, which inevitably makes it controversial. The 2006 classification was recently invalidated by the courts, for example, and the 1996 one applied instead. We await 2016. In any case, wines are divided into Premier Grand Cru classe A, Premier Grand Cru classe B, and Grand Cru classe. Only Cheval Blanc  and Ch. Ausone merit the designation Premier Grand Cru classe A. Less meaningful is the term “Grand Cru,” which can be found on the labels of over a hundred different estates and is not part of the official classification.
