La Carree Domaine Milan, Natural wine, old vines, tiny production, rich and expressive, complex, ages in New Oak. La Carree is stunning rich and perfumed wine from the noble Roussanne Variety. Its layers of ripe stone fruit, lavender, wild herbs and mint leading to a long lingering finish which evolves in the mouth. Outstanding white wine from one of the south s best producers. When you harvest the vinyard, aromas of flowers and wild herbs assail the nose, then you taste the wine and those same aromas explode from the glass, really quite astonishingly complex and pure terroir wine.

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.
