The Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 was based entirely on recent market prices for a vineyard's wines, with one exception: Château Mouton Rothschild. Despite the market prices for their vineyard's wines equalling that of Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Mouton Rothschild was excluded from First Great Growth status.
In 1973, Mouton was elevated to first growth status after decades of intense lobbying by its powerful and influential owner, the only change in the original 1855 classification.
