New Saint-Emilion official classification

Here is finally the official new classification for Saint-Emilion. (Last one was made in 2006.)

Of course, with every classification comes controversy…

But to be honest the 4 First Growth rated A do deserve their ranking, in our opinion, even if some people may argue that Angélus, despite its intrinsec quality is not the perfect expression of the Saint-Emilion terroir… (We’re big big fan of Angélus at Wine&Only, especially in magnum, though!)
