He gave me no peace, the perfect Christmas wine. A diligent writer in the forum of Wein-Plus brought it into play. Just like that, probably to be understood as an award or value judgement, as praise or linguistic helplessness. You can turn it around however you want. The "perfect Christmas wine" remains a fiction, possibly even a beautiful, enjoyable one. There was then promptly an outcry in the forum: What is this, a "perfect Christmas wine"? Perfect - I think - derives from the Latin "perfectum", which means something like "perfect". Maybe there is such a thing, the perfect wine - maybe, but I haven't come across it yet, despite hundreds, yes, thousands of attempts. Just bad luck?
