This is an exceptional Vin de France made for long cellaring, combining elegance and freshness with a fine tannic structure. Simply a triumph from one of the most exciting, rebellious producers in the Baux-de-Provence region. More info

Clos Milan is a super certified organic blend of Grenache Noir and Syrah, whose vines yield around 35 hl/ha on alluvial debris and gravelly-sandy soil. The forty-year-old vines are harvested by hand and the fruit undergoes a brief 8-day whole-cluster maceration; the wine matures for 2 years in old barrels and a further 2 years in concrete vats. This cuvée has fabulous ageing potential – at least 20 years – and combines ample elegance and freshness with a pleasant tannic structure.

Vin de France Clos Milan Henri Milan serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Daube de sanglier, Lapin à la tomate et au basilic, Boles de Picolat à la catalane.

Information about domain Henri Milan

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.
