  • Le Papillon is a wine for drinking young, with unparalleled flavour. Spice and fruit open on the nose with an unctuous mouthfeel and fine, saline finish which pairs excellently with Mediterranean cuisine. With this cuvée Henri Milan favours a direct pressing and barrelling towards the end of alcoholic fermentation before maturing in old barrels on fine lees for 5 months. No added sulphites, no fining and no filtration here. A coveted bottle for drinking in its early youth.

    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.
