In contrast to the different classifications of Bordeaux, which classify in general to the Castles, these are the areas of production and, hence, the plots of vines that are delimited by appellations, which have four different levels :
- Regional appellations (approximately 50% of the wine production)
- The village appellations (or communal), as Meursault, Givry, Mercurey, Chablis, Pommard....
- On the 1st Raw, always contiguous to the name of a village (example Pommard 1er Cru, Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru....). There are more than 600 first different vintages.
- And finally the Grands Crus, the number of 33 which 7 are white, and which each have a proper name.
