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.
About the cuvée
Le Clos Milan is matured in barrels for two years then in vats for two years. On this warmer terroir of sand and gravel, the wines can be aged for a very long time. This is a great, complex, rich red wine with an incredibly long finish: red and black fruits aromas and cocoa combined with lightly spicy notes.
