Clos Milan 2006 Henri Milan, organic wine, natural wine, sublime Provençal flavours and rich texture. Old vines Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre from the great Henri Milan's eponymous estate in the Alpilles. The Clos vineyard is situated right in front of the lovely farm house with the back drop of the Alpilles mountains and the lavender fields of Provence. It is a beautiful and natural place to be and the grapes find harmony in this environment and yield great quality fruit which is fermented in concrete with wild yeast and then aged in old barrels for at least a couple of years. Subtle and elegant aromas of dark fruit, herbs and black olive are woven into a structured but fresh palate. Like the whites Milan's reds have a burgundy like quality to them and the Clos at 14% alcohol drinks very easily indeed. The 2006 vintage is a fascinating drop. It has red fruits, herbs de Provence and still plenty of freshness. At 13 years old, it is showing beautifully but i would say has a good 3-5 years in it yet.
