This quote has a distinctive pre-war flavour although the dinner was held in London in 1958. The Burgundy referred to is the Chateau Gris Nuit St Georges 1928.

"The soufflé that accompanied the Burgundy was firm but feathery, hot and succulent, playing a subsidiary role with grace and elegance-a bandillero to a matador. And never have I tasted a Burgundy to match the Chateau Gris. It was supreme, full and soft and rich and heavy... As long as I remember anything, I shall remember those two bottles of Chateay Gris. They will be an amulet against the raucous self-assertive voices of modernity. …and I see those sacred slopes softened by the amber radiance of a Burgundian sunset, I shall remember those two bottles which could have been produced at no other time, and in no other place, and I shall see the whole process of living enriched by the miracle that is in wine."
