The General Assembly from Medoc's Alliance de Crus Bourgeois took place at château Clément Pichon and voted with a large majority for a guidelines defining the crus bourgeois status.
Therefore, the rules are now clear for any properties applying for the status Medoc cru bourgeois. If I understand correctly, the office of Veritas is in charge of the application process and granting the approval.
If it works for bourgeois thought, why not the same thing in St. Emilion?
Anyway, thank you to the team of the Alliance to have completed this challenge, and its president for his effort in resolving this difficult issue, with consensus.
