The appellation (actually Macvin without "r") in the French wine region law applies to a sweet Vin de liqueur, It was classified as exactly four hundredth appellation in 1991 (before the classification it was called Maquevin or Marc-Vin). Such wines have been produced in France since the 14th century. The unconventional recipe becomes the abbess of the monastery Château-Chalon attributed. Originally it was a boiled wine, to which flavorings and spices were added. At that time it was called "Galant" and was supposedly the one favorite wine many nobles such as Margaret of France, the Duchess of Burgundy and wife of Philip the Bold (1363-1404). Later one was made by cooking concentrated grape must produced, which was mixed with pomace brandy (mistletoe).
