Petits Châteaux in French means small castles. In Bordeaux petits châteaux refers to a
property not classified in the 1855 Classification System. Notably petits
châteaux is a term synonymous with reasonably priced wine. Their more famous neighbours often eclipse wines from petits châteaux,
but if you love good red wine then it is well worth discovering them. Often
just a fence separates the petit chateaux from a more expensive classified
neighbour. As the prices of the
classified chateaux continue to rise, it is the petit chateaux that offer great
value. It is often said that in
good years the best value is found in these petit chateaux as quality is found
across the region, not just in the expensive chateaux.
