Ich struggle additionally nicht verwundert, mit einem Mal festzustellen, daß mich in den vergangenen Jahren der Charakter von Menschen immer weniger und der von Weinen immer mehr zu interessieren begann." So eröffnet der Ich-Erzähler seine Geschichte.

Auf der Suche nach der legendären Flasche Yquem 1740 jagt der Erzähler quer durch Europa hiner einer Fälscherbande her: der Besuch einer unter Weinkennern legendären Verkostung von a hundred twenty five Jahrgängen Yquem (ein zentrales Kapitel des Buches), Piemont und Paris sind die Stationen der Reise. In Paris - wo der nach Aufdeckung seiner Vergangenheit geflüchtete Jürgensen den 1740er Yquem übergeben will - kommt es zur großen Abrechnung.
"Dann werden wir sehen, wer recht hat: Sartre oder ich", so die lakonische Folgerung des Ich-Erzählers.

Eine Geschichte, lapidar und weit ausholend zugleich, die selbst beim Blick in die schaurigsten Abgründe der menschlichen Seele noch die Ironie des Absurden erkennt. Ein Roman und ein Kriminalroman voll melancholischem Sarkasmus - mit leisem Humor unterlegt.
