I'm looking for the longest sentence in Proust's Remembrance of Things Past

In an article
(subscription req.) this morning in the Wall Street Journal about this book
, I was intrigued by the following claim: Mr. de Botton fearlessly cuts through Proust's prose (his longest sentence would stretch around the base of a wine bottle 17 times)...
So my question is: what is that sentence?
