DEEP HISTORICAL ROOTS
The Crus Bourgeois are a legacy that dates back to the Middle Ages.

The bourgeois were inhabitants of the "bourg" of Bordeaux, a town of merchants and craftsmen. During the period of English rule, they acquired rights and privileges, including exemption from taxes on the sale of the wines from their vineyards both locally (Guyenne) and abroad.

By the fifteenth century, enriched by their international commerce, the bourgeois of Bordeaux were able to acquire the finest properties in the region, which were initially referred to as the "Crus des Bourgeois" and then simply the "Crus Bourgeois".

A text from 1740 contains the first selection and specifies the prices of the wines of the Médoc.
