From the cellar
Charles Hours, Uroulat, Jurançon 2007
On a sunny Sunday in late May, 65 guests milled around in a cobbled mews in Paris’ 11th arrondissement enjoying AR Lenoble’s Brut Intense 2014 Champagne served from methusalah. This was a prelude to Rhône Ranger Tim Johnston of Juveniles restaurant’s 70th birthday lunch, which drew to a close five hours later. Johnston had chosen six of his favourite producers to offer eight wines, all grands formats, under the theme ‘Big Boys Only’.
