Designation for a wine of outstanding or absolutely perfect quality in the context of a wine address and wine evaluation (point optimum of 20 or 100 points) as an increase too great and optimal drinking maturity (climax). An exemplary description for a red wine:

Beguiling, extremely deep, sweet scent of plums and ripe red berries with multi-layered spice and intense mineral tones. Juicy and dense taste in the mouth, powerful structure, with quantities of absolutely pure, highly ripe, sweet, but anything but jammy or compote fruit, amazing finesse and elegance, immensely present, original, very fine tannin, very deep and perfectly balanced, clear character of origin, as well as incredibly multi-layered, broadly fanning out finish with extreme length. The grandiose wine completely casts a spell over you.
