New list of the Best St Emilion – dawn of a new era

Its out!! the new list that has already caused so much controversy!! Everyone wins with 6 more properties included and no-one coming out. For my background article

Congratulations to my favorite Figeac new A only 1 of 2 As with Pavie (the two orginal As never applied Ausone and Cheval Blanc). Angelus pulled out recently criticising the tasters as did level B, La Gaffeliere owned by St Emilion’s oldest family, Malet Roquefort.

Also congratulations to my favorite Corbin Michotte who make beautiful classic St Emilion and newcomer Tour Ste Christophe classified for the first time and owned by Peter Kwok (Bellefont Belcier retain their Grand Cru Classé status and deserve to be a premier next time round 2032!)

There are now 14 Premier Grand Cru Classés, with two at Premier Grand Cru Classé A status, and 71 Grand Cru Classés. The last ranking, in 2012, has 18 Premier Grand Cru Classés, with four at ‘A’ status, and 64 Grand Cru Classés.
