"I sometimes ruminate upon contenders for the "greatest wine in the world." There is one name that always springs to mind, not just for me but countless others: Château d'Yquem.
Château d'Yquem is undoubtedly a unique wine, unchallenged in terms of purity, complexity, longevity and subtlety. Aesthetically wondrous, there is a coruscating, golden glow that illuminates even the gloomiest dinner table." Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
