Only 4, 4.5 and 5 NJP wines (Nenad Jelisic Points) are presented as the best vintages.
From October 2010, every time we update any information or write a new information, we shall write in parentheses when the update has last taken place e.g. (2010-10).
If for some wine stands behind the best vintages none, it means that the wine's price is too high for its quality or the wine's quality is too low.
