Established in 1953 (and slightly revised in 1959), the Graves classification is comprised of 16 châteaux from the Pessac-Léognan appellation, recognized for their red wines, white wines, or both:
The estates and wines belonging to this classification are not ranked. Rather, all are entitled to the name “Cru Classé.”
Château Haut-Brion is the only wine in Bordeaux to belong to two classifications, namely the Crus Classés de Graves and the Grands Crus Classés de Médoc.
• 6 Crus Classés red
• 3 Crus Classés white
• 6 Crus Classés red and white
