Chateau Figeac was the only new chateau named Premier Grand Cru Classé A in the 2022 Saint-Emilion Classification announced on Thursday. Figeac joins Pavie at the top of the contested classification.

"We welcome this decision with pride and gratitude. We will continue to bring happiness to lovers of great wines," said Marie-France Manoncourt of Chateau Figeac in a press release.

There were no other changes to the Premier Grand Cru Classés, but several chateaux were promoted to Grand Cru Classé. The classification suffered a hit when famous names Angélus, Ausone and Cheval Blanc decided to retire from it, along with La Gaffelière.

The Saint-Emilion classification was first made in 1955. Unlike the famous 1855 classification on the left bank, the Saint-Emilion classification is meant to be renewed every 10 years. The process puts the wines through blind tastings and rates areas like geology, price and reputation. The 2006 update was plagued by legal battles, but the 2012 version survived despite challenges.

There are three levels: Grand Cru Classé; Premier Grand Cru Classé B and Premier Grand Cru Classé A.
