Only 4,5 and 5,0 NJP-wines (Nenad Jelisic Points) are presented as the best vintages.

 

If for some wine behind “the best vintages” stands “none”, it means that none of the wine's vintages got 4,5 NJP or 5,0 NJP.

 

 

Maceration, to get more colour, more flavour and more tannins, most winemakers usually macerate, i.e. let the grape skins remain in the mass (must) and leach.

 

Macération carbonique, a maceration method that was invented in Beaujolais (a French wine district). Everything starts with that whole grapes (not pressed) are placed in a closed vessel and then the vessel is filled with carbon dioxide. Under the carbon dioxide pressure, a first fermentation, inside the grapes occurs, whereupon the grapes explode and a second, traditional fermentation begins. (2016-08)

 

Mâconnais, a French wine district (region) that belongs to the Burgundy wine region. Mâconnais consists of three regional appellations: Mâcon, Mâcon with the name of the municipality (villages) and Mâcon-Villages and 5 Villages appellations: Pouilly-Fuissé (757 ha), Pouilly-Loche (32 ha), Pouilly-Vinzellees (52 ha), Saint-Véran (680) and Viré-Clessé (391 ha). The wine district has 6,991 ha (year 2010) and 80% of those produce white wines. The majority of white wines are labelled as Mâcon-Blanc-Villages with the municipality's name and Mâcon with the municipality's name. Mâconnais is dominated by 13 large cooperatives. The three largest are: Lugny, which owns 1,750 ha, Prissé, which owns 950 ha, and Viré, which owns 320 ha. The overwhelming majority of the Mâconnais-wines should be drunk before they reach 3 years old. (2014-06)

 

Mâconnais grapes, dominate Chardonnay with Pinot Blanc; Gamay, Pinot Noir and Aligote are also grown. (2011-12)

Mâcon-Villages, a French appellation that belongs to the Mâconnais wine district, which in turn belongs to the wine region of Burgundy. Mâcon-Villages covers 3,243 ha planted with vine and has no Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards. The appellation consists of three appellations: Mâcon (78 ha), Mâcon with the name of municipality (villages) (1,829 ha) and Mâcon-Villages (1,336 ha). 26 communes (villages) have the right to write their name on the label behind Mâcon. Both the permitted and the average yield is 60 hl/ha. The most concentrated and buttery wines with hints of honey and peaches come from the south parts of the appellation; Fuissé, Loché, Pierreclos and Solutré. The wines from here are aged on yeast sediment in stainless steel tanks and partly in 300 to 500 litres oak barrels, partly new, a few months. 225 litres barrels (barrique) are rarely used.

Madeira, a fortified wine from the Portuguese island of Madeira, which is mainly produced of a red grape variety Negra Mole (about 85%), and four white grape varieties: Bual, Malvasia, Sercial and Verdelho. It starts with that the grapes are harvested, crushed, pressed and fermented in either stainless steel or oak casks. During the fermentation, the wine is fortified by the addition of neutral grape spirits, which halts the fermentation and creates wine styles from sweet (Malmsey; also known as Malvasia or Malvazia) to dry (Sercial). The aging process depends on the quality of the wine. The cheaper wines (the wines of inferior quality) are artificially heated in low stainless steel or concrete tanks (Cuba de Calor) and the expensive wines (the highest quality wines) in cask in the ambient heat of island (Canteiro). This means that all Madeira wines are subject to considerable oxidative ageing (contact with air/oxygen). The combination of the used grapes’ natural acidity, the fortification and the aging process makes Madeira to one of the longest lived wines in the world. (2016-07)

Maison, = négociant. “Maison” is often used on the label for wines made from grapes that have been purchased. Fédération des Syndicats de Négociants-Eleveurs de Grande Bourgogne estimates that 50% of Burgundy bottles are Maison (négociant) bottles. (2016-05)
