Grand Vin ) for the qualitatively best and representative wine of a Chateau, This is subject to particularly strict Vinifizierungsregeln such as yield reduction and expansion, He is pressed from the best grapes and at the assemblage blended from the best wines. Only the Grand Vin is allowed exclusively on the label to be called the Châteaunamen. The reason for this is that this is often associated with a winery classification.
