The Liv-ex Classification

The 1855 Classification was drawn up by the Bordeaux Brokers Union for use as part of the regional display at the 1855 Paris Universal Exhibition. Based wholly on price, and including only the major estates of the Left Bank, it still defines the way we think about and refer to Bordeaux wines. Liv-ex has created its own classification that ranks wines by their average trade prices, which has been updated every two years since 2009 to reflect the changing buying patterns of the trade. The next update is due in 2021.
