The 1855 classification system was made on request of Emperor Napoleon III for the  Universal Exhibition of Paris. This came to be known as the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. This classification ranks the wines into five categories according to their prices. The first Crus of red wines (four from Médoc and one, Château Haut-Brion, from Graves), are among the most expensive wines in the world.
