The New York Times reports on the drama in the classification of St Emilion wines <link>. It’s a real mess with Chateaus being unclassified, classified and then unclassified again. There is nothing good in here for the perception of St Emilion. The one good thing is that there are now grand cru classe quality wines available at non grand cru prices.

Look out for Grand Corbin-Despagne. Here’s their site <link>

Update: Here’s a more complete list of the Chateau impacted by the decision.

  • Pavie Macquin
  • Troplong Monddot
  • Bellefont-Belcier
  • Destieux
  • Fleur Cardinale
  • Grand Corbin
  • Grand-Corbin-Despagne
  • Monbousquet
