Only 4,5 and 5,0 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.

Penfolds, Grange, one of Australia's internationally most famous wines. The wine is made from 86 to 99% Shiraz (Syrah) and 1 to 14% Cabernet Sauvignon. 1951, 1952, 1963, 1999, 2000 and 2001, the wine was made of 100% Shiraz. Unique for this exclusive wine is that the grapes come from many different vineyards, which are not even located in the same wine region. When the grapes come to the winery, they are carefully sorted. Thereafter, the grapes are destemmed and gently pressed and the newly pressed must is moved to relatively shallow and open concrete tanks (fermenter). First, the must is cold macerated and then cultivated yeast is added, which starts the fermentation process. The fermentation and maceration are going on usually only 5 to 7 days under a 25 to 27 degrees high temperature. During the fermentation, the thick layer of skins, stems and seeds (cap) is pressed down by a wooden grill in the must, and one to three times a day the fermenter is emptied of the fermented must, which is then pumped back over the top again. After the short fermentation and maceration, the still fermented must is separated from the solids and transferred to the brand new American 300 liters oak barrels. In these, the fermentation continues at a lower temperature until the fermentation is completed. In the barrels, the wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation and a 15 to 18 months long aging. Penfolds, Grange has a large aging potential, up to 40 years. (2017-12)

Pessac-Léognan, a French appellation that belongs to the wine district of Graves, which in turn belongs to the wine region of Bordeaux. The appellation has 1,350 ha. The average yield is 50 hl/ha. 80% of the produced wines are red and 20% are white. Château Haut-Brion, which according to the 1855 classification was classified as Premier Cru, is located in in the appellation. The appellation's best wines come from the Léognan- and Martillac area. Thanks to the good drainage properties of the gravel, Pessac-Léognan wines, unlike those from Médoc, tend to be good during very rainy years. On the other hand, during very hot and dry years, Pessac-Léognan wines tend to, due to that the grapes suffer from water stress (the maturity of the grapes becomes less due to the decreased photosynthesis), be poor. The wines (chateaux) from Pessac-Léognan were classified in 1953 and then again in 1959. The classification, which was carried out in 1959, classed 13 châteaux as the best for red wines and 9 as the best for white wines. Later, at the request of Château Haut-Brion, the Château Haut-Brion was taken away from the nine classed châteaux for the white wines. In 1987, Pessac-Léognan got the appellation status, before that it belonged to the appellation of Graves. (2014-08)
