Chris & Aaron is like a trip tale into the mind of a creative soul

Chateau Yquem Sauternes Yquem. “I do not call Yquem a wine because there are an infinite number of “wines” as such, but Yquem is unique. I prefer the word nectar – the drink of the gods – and if I found one that was more noble, I would be less ashamed of our restrictive vocabulary so poorly suited to superlatives.”
