1959 Graves Classification

The 1959 Graves classification is not referred to particularly extensively in my experience, but it is nonetheless a useful reference point for the wines of this good value region.  The wines of Graves, with the exception of first growth Chateau Haut-Brion, were unrepresented in the 1855 classification.

For the purposes of reference, this classification will be accessible under the heading "Wine Classifications" on the right hand side of the website.
