Cru Bourgeois: new listing launched

on 25/09/10 at 10:01 am


The new Cru Bourgeois selection has been announced in Paris and London – to the relief of everyone concerned.

Frederique de Lamothe, the director of the Alliance des Cru Bourgeois du Medoc told today she was delighted to finally announce the results of three years’ work.

‘There has been a lot of stress,’ she said. ‘For three years we’ve been more or less working in secrecy without being able to tell anyone what we are doing.’

The Alliance has made clear that the listing is an annual quality assessment, not a classification of chateaux or terroirs like the 1855 classification.
