  • 100% Grenache Noir marked by phenomenal freshness and punctuated by roasted notes of coffee and chocolate. The cuvée owes its name to the winery’s master of ceremonies, Sébastien Xavier, who first had the idea to vinify late-harvested Grenaches, verging on overripe. The fruit undergoes brief whole-cluster maceration and the wine matures for one year in old barrels; allowing this Vin de Table to cellar for a good 15 years!

    Henri Milan is a rebellious character; he calls himself a “right-wing anarchist” and broke away from the appellation Baux-de-Provence AOC in 2007 to retain the freedom to produce the wines he wanted to make, in the way he wanted to make them. In the winery he uses no additions or chemical treatments, except a very small amount of sulphur dioxide in the bottle, but the wines are unfined and unfiltered. Before he took over the family domaine, Milan had several formative conversations which would influence his winegrowing choices, notably with soil researcher and agribiologist Claude Bourguignon who educated him about organic conversion in the vineyard. Henri has passed his astute critical mind on to his son Théophile, who manages the commercial side of the business.
