The Conseil des Grands Crus Classes in 1855 (Médoc & Sauternes) is an official organization in charge of the protection and illustration of the classification of Bordeaux wines. Its creation dates back to the Exposition Universelle of 1855 in Paris when Napoléon III requested that each wine region establish a classification. Its history has always been embedded in art, artists and fine wines.
After the English painter Carl Laubin in 1989, the photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand in 2008, it is Philippe Starck who has designed the new poster this year.
