Description

The 18 Year Old 2nd Edition continues the sweet wine cask influence of the 1st Editions pioneering Bourbon/Willi Opitz bottling.

Here we have again fused American oak with the more flavoursome French oak - but this time the casks contained the rare,

sweet wine from Jurancon in the Pyrennean foothills, of south-west France. Together they make an other extraordinary mellow

and profound bottling.

Jurancon is an esoteric vineyard that achieved celebrity after i was first used at the baptism of King Henri IV, the first bourbon

monarch of France, in 1553Clos Urolat is a pseudo-organic vineyard owned by the appropriately bear-like rugby fanatic Charles Hours.

His decadently rich wine is made from the exotically named Petit Manseng grape - benefitting from an unusual high altitude

micro climate, where the warm sea breeze and oceanic climate allows the legendary Noble Rot to occur, when the grapes

over-ripen taking on rich,raisin like characters.
