The 1955 Official Classification of Saint-Émilion


The first classification of Saint-Émilion was created in 1955 and is the only classification of the right bank. Unlike the historic 1855 classification, it was set up to encourage wine growers to improve their quality and enhance the reputation of their wines by undergoing reviews approximately every 10 years.

The classification groups the best wines into two categories: Premier Grand Cru Classé and Grand Cru Classé, the Premier Grand Cru Classé is dived into Premier Grand Cru Classé ‘A’ and Premier Grand Cru Classé ‘B’.

Following the initial classification, the list was updated in 1969, 1986, 1996, 2006 and most recently in 2012. In the Initial 1955 list there were 12 Premier Grand Cru Classé and 63 Grand Cru Classé, whereas today, according to the newest reclassification of 2012, there are 63 Grands crus classes and 18 Premier grand crus classes. The 2012 changes are marked by *.
