Premier Cru (first Growth)

The “Premier Cru,” or “First Growth,” designation refers to the select wineries in Bordeaux, France, included in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. The quality classification was ordered by Emperor Napoleon III and quickly carried out by the country’s wine brokers.

Premier Cru is a tier below Grand Cru wines but still considered to be high quality. There are only five First Growth wineries in Bordeaux making red wine: Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Margaux, Château Latour, Château Haut-Brion and Château Mouton-Rothschild. All but one of these hails from the Médoc region (Château Haut-Brion is in Graves).
