Crus Bourgeois du Médoc has unveiled its new official classification consisting of three categories, which will now be updated every five years. The classification covers 249 castles and ranks them as either Cru Bourgeois, Cru Bourgeois Supérieur or Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel.
the Location for the 2018 class includes 179 Crus Bourgeois, 56 Crus Bourgeois Supérieurs and 14 Crus Bourgeois Exceptionnels.
Properties ranked in the category "Exceptionnels" includes the châteaux Paveil de Luze and d'Arsac in Margaux; châteaux Le Bosq, Lillian Ladouys and Le Crock in Saint-Estèphe; Château Lestage in Listrac-Médoc and eight properties in the Haut-Médoc: châteaux d'Agassac, Arnauld, Belle-Vue, Cambon La Pelouse, Charmail, Malescasse, the Malleret and du Taillan.
the Castles will be able to use their classification on their labels by 2018, the year for the next five years, with the next classification earmarked for 2022.
The new classification has been in preparation and consultation for 10 years. Most remarkably, however, the lack of the very best castles such as Château Poujeaux, Chasse Spleen, Sociando-Mallet, Potensac, Ormes-de-Pez, Phelan Segur and Gloria who have chosen to stand udne for the new classification. A clear minus as it means from the start niveaumæssigt starts something under the previous classifications. The reason for the lack of slottes presence is given disagreements about the requirements of the new classification.
