Today we continue with that tradition offering the most competitive pricing available from one of the world's greatest regions.

Grand Cru Classe refers to the Wine Official Classification of 1855 by declaration of Emperor Napoleon III, which states that the wines of Bordeaux should be ranked and given status according to their reputation and/or vineyards which made exceptional wines throughout many years. Grand Cru Classe is also known as the Great Classified Growths. There is a total of five levels of classification referred to as crus or growths.

Most of the wines classified under the Grand Cru Classe system were reds, however white wines from the region of Barsac and Sauternes renowned for their sweet wines of Semillon and Sauvignon blanc made the ranking as well.
