L’invention du cru en Bordelais. Du croît d’un lieu au vin de distinction (Moyen Âge-XVIIe siècle)

Abstract : In the Bordeaux region, the current approach of growth in its soil, œnological, legal, etc. aspects is the result of a wine discrimination process inherited from the 18th century and standardised during the 19th and the 20th centuries, with the setting of a network composed of experts who have established the criteria for discrimination. As part of this modern conception, historians' works, such as those of René Pijassou and Henri Enjalbert, tried to retrace this emergence that they linked with those of fine wines and of the « châteaux » during the 17th and the 18th centuries. In this way, they have neglected the use of the word « growth » in more ancient texts and in the same time they have forgotten the medieval legacy in its invention. This study proposes to restore it by the analysis of the uses of this word in Late medieval texts and by the comment of its semantic evolution until the appearance of the « grands crus ».
