The history of this classification
In 1953, at the request of the Syndicat de défense de l’appellation des Graves, the Institut national des appellations d’origine (INAO) established this classification.

Criteria
By municipality and wine type (red or white).

Special labeling
Only one classification level, no hierarchy; this classification is not subject to revision.

The categories 

16 Crus, all of which belong to the AOC Pessac-Léognan:
