Did you know : Monticello to St-Emilion

Did you know… that a famous American was responsible for the first classification and documentation of the Bordeaux vineyards ?


The official classification of the Bordeaux vineyards was released in 1855, however, when visiting the region in 1787 Thomas Jefferson actually wrote a detailed documentation of the estates, practices and products. He later became the third US President. I wonder if he was prouder of having written the Declaration of Independence or that Bordeaux wine treaty ?
