Wine YearAOC
Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC)
AOC stands for “Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée”. It tells you where the wine comes from, its origin. It also tells you that the wine is made according to the criteria of this AOC.
Class.
Classification (Class.)
Most of these wines belong to one of the Bordeaux classifications:
1st-5th GCC - The famous 1855 Médoc Grand Cru Classé Classification (61 wines). The list starts with the top 5 of 1st Classed Growths.
1st GCC a & b and GCC - The St-Emilion Premier Grand Crus (class a and class b) and the Grand Cru Classés.
CB - The Médoc Cru Bourgeois Classification (1932). Last renewed in 2003 (with at the top the 9 Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel followed by the Cru Bourgeois Supérieur classed wines, this 2003 classification is used for the overviews 2004 - 2006). In February 2007 the classification was annuled by the Bordeaux Administrative Appeals Court, and in November 2007 it was decided that the classification would be continued but without the sub-classes at the top.
CC Grav. - All Graves wines classified (1959) as Cru Classé de Graves are located in the Pessac-Léognan region (as individual AOC established in 1987).
Size
Size in hectares (Size)
This column tells you what the size is of the property in hectares (ha). Note that seldomly all land is used to make the first wine of the estate. Most châteaux also make a second and even a third wine on the estate.
By
Winemaker, consultant, manager or owner (By)
Some people are playing a decisive role in the wine-making process. From more to less influential with respect to the style of the wine we can distinguish:
1. consulting oenologist
2. oenologist
3. cellar master (and vineyard manager)
4. (general) manager
5. owner
Not all roles are necessarily played by different people, e.g. there is no oenologist supporting the cellar master, or the owner himself is in fact the winemaker. For this column the person fulfilling the first role is mentioned: he or she is in fact the person who most determines the overall style of the wine.
JS
James Suckling (JS)
American wine critic James Suckling published in the American magazine Wine Spectator up to and including the Bordeaux 2009 vintage. From Bordeaux 2010 vintage he publishes on his own new website JamesSuckling.com. Wines are rated on a scale from 50 to 100. For example 92-94 means "ranging from 92 to 94". Not all wines are (already) rated.
De
Decanter (De)
English wine magazine. Wines are given 1 to 5 stars. From the 2007 vintage onwards the 10 - 20 scale is presented (might be changed later for the 2006 vintage etc. also). The wines are tasted by Steven Spurrier, James Lawther MW and Beverley Blanning MW. Not all wines are (already) rated.
