Liv-Ex releases updated Right Bank classification based on 1855 criteria
In 1855 Bordeaux’s left bank was classified by merchants looking to send wine to the Paris Exhibition. The wines were ranked simply by price.
Liv Ex released their take on Right bank wines using a similar system.
This biennial classification sorts wines based on retail prices. At the very top of the right bank is Petrus (Pomerol) followed by Le Pin (Pomerol), Ausone (St Emilion), Cheval Blanc (St Emilion), Lafleur (Pomerol) and Angélus (St Emilion). On this basis, they would all be considered first growths.
