La Carree Roussanne Domaine Milan 2018
No reviews yet
- La Carree Roussanne Domaine Milan 2018 - Natural wine, fermented and matured in oak, candied fruits, orange, cream, fresh mint, a wine of outstanding texture, depth and complexity. Will age well. The top cuvee white wine of Domaine Milan is very serious stuff, akin to top level Chateauneuf Blanc or Burgundy. The Roussanne grape with its high acid structure takes well to new oak and time in bottle. La Carree is also one of the most 'terroir capturing' wines we have ever tasted with the scents and flavours of the vineyard brimming in every glass. The 18 is a superb vintage and will age well. Only 2000 bottles made.
Henri Milan has always done thing his way, and broke away from the Baux de Provence AOC so as to have the freedom to produce the wines he wanted.
The Domaine was started by Henri's father Robert in 1956, but it wasn't until Henri took over in the mid-80s that he converted to organic production. Influenced by Claude Courtois and Claude Bourguignon, Henri began to vinify the different sections of his vineyard separately and moved further towards natural production. He now grows a number of grape varieties including Grenache, Syrah, Grenache Blanc, Rolle, Roussanne and Chardonnay. The only chemical treatment used during the entire process of growth and vinification is a small amount of sulphur dioxide, which is added, on some rare occasions, during bottling. Fermentation always takes place naturally, with the grapes blended at the beginning of the process, rather than at the end. His wines have a wonderful purity and expression of terroir.
