Within a few things may be international wine critics agree so as to qualify for the prestigious Château d'Yquem in a separate category. Who does not know the Chateau d'Yquem? Probably, and with the Domaine de la Romanee Conti, the world's most prestigious winery, and a tradition of several centuries.

Thomas Jefferson, when he was U.S. ambassador in France before becoming president, acquired the harvest of 1784 (and 1787, some of whose bottles have recently appeared, with its original cork, and they say, still alive and drinking). At that time, almost no bottled wines. It seems that Jefferson made a selection of barrels he liked, and asked for the bottle in a bottle engraved with his initials, the vintage, and the name of the property, Yquem. Later the brother of the Tsar of Russia was similarly a selection of the most liked barrels, Napoleon bought part of the harvest of 1802, and even Stalin Russia has always been a major destination of the bottles of Yquem-called "sticks" (cuttings), attempts to produce the Russian version of wine.
