1855 is a magic date for Bordeaux wine lovers and a special tour has been devised just for them. Undertaken at the request of Napoléon III and unchanged since 1855, the famous 1855 classification of the wines of Bordeaux officially recognised 86 estates, and divided them into 5 categories (first, second, third, fourth and fifth growths). These are located in the Médoc, in Sauternes and Barsac and one of them (Château Haut-Brion) in the Graves. Ten of these great growths, among the most famous in Bordeaux, are welcoming visitors on Wednesday from May to October on a rotating basis this year.
