A zero-sulphite cuvée with intense fruit and impossible freshness. More info

Le Papillon is one fruity little number, a zero-sulphite blend of Grenache Noir, Syrah, Mourvèdre. The organic vines yield around 35 hl/ha and grow on clay-limestone with blue marl subsoil. Grapes are harvested by hand before a 5-day whole-cluster maceration. Alcoholic fermentation is finished in concrete vats. Wine is bottled without added sulphites, fining or filtration. Of course this means that Le Papillon requires impeccable storage conditions to be enjoyed at its best in 5 years. Astonishingly fresh and fruity, it pairs perfectly with charcuterie.

Vin de France Papillon Sans Soufre Henri Milan serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Pâtés et terrines, Carré dagneau aux herbes, Magret de canard au poivre vert.

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.
