Designation for a wine of exceptional quality in the context of a wine address and wine evaluation (at least 18 or 95 points). An increase to this is grandiose for a perfect wine (20 or 100 points). The negative contrast to this is small. However, none of this has any significance in terms of wine law. See also under 1811s, auctions, vintage, century wine, comet wine and most expensive wines in the world.
