The 1959 Official Classification of Graves


With the exclusion of Haut-Brion, the historic classification of 1855 did not take into account the châteaux of what was then the Graves appellation. In 1987 the region within the Graves appellation containing all the Grand Cru Classed Chateaux, mostly in the north of Graves, was designated a superior appellation: "Pessac-Leognan".

The Classification of Graves was first listed unofficially in 1953, but the classification did not become official until the 1959 ranking, which was based essentially on the same criteria of reputation and selling price as the classification of 1855.

The single classification list is divided between red wines and white wines, which means that some châteaux are mentioned twice, once in each category.
