The well-known Classification of 1855 did not include the Graves region with the exception of Chateau Haut-Brion (due to its fame).  The chateaux of the Graves region were finally classified in 1953.  That classification was made official in 1959.  The chateaux were qualified separately based on their white wines and on their red wines.   A few chateaux were recognized for their success with their red wines as well as their whites.  The chateaux are listed alphabetically in each category rather than based on any quality ranking.
