16 new Grands Crus classified in Saint-Emilion – Companies

For newcomers, this ranking is obviously a commercial boon.

It caused a lot of ink to flow before its release and caused the prior withdrawal of the stars of the appellation (Cheval Blanc, Ausone and Angelus) but it is now released. The 2022 ranking of Saint-Emilion (it is adjusted every 10 years) consecrates as Premier Grand Cru Classé A, Château-Figeac (it is promoted) and Pavie (the only survivor of the previous classification). No change in the Premiers Grands Crus Classés. On the other hand, the lowest category, that of Grands Crus Classés, welcomes 16 new Castles including Mangot but also Corbin Michotte whose exclusion in 2012 had triggered a judicial maelstrom and La Marzelle, property of the Sioen family. For newcomers, this ranking is obviously a commercial boon.
