Lets Play a Little Game – Here Is A Wine Quiz

1855. Exposition Universelle de Paris will be taking place in Paris. Emperor Napoleon III requests classification system to be created for best Bordeaux wines, to represent French wines at the Expo. Classification system is created by the wine brokers based on wine price and Chateau reputation, where all wines are classified in five Growth (Crus), with First Growth being the best. Only four estates became so called First Growth in the 1855 classification, and the fifth one was added more than a hundred years later.

Here comes the question – which First Growth Chateau was not a part of the original 1855 classification? As this quiz has no prize attached to it, I would definitely recommend that you will try to answer the question on your own first before you will be reaching out to Google for an answer – it is definitely more fun this way.

Have fun! Cheers!

    The link to the poll does not work, but I believe it’s mouton Rothschild which was added in the 70’s.
