Details

An older vintage of Grand Blanc in Magnum is a rare and beautiful thing. The 2007 standard bottle was absolutely delicious and so, although i haven't tasted it, (only a few bottles left literally) this 08 Magnum i know ill be stunning wine and one for the collectors among you who may like to keep a few special bottles in your cellar.
When Henri Milan makes wine, he really does just let nature take its course. The man is slow, methodical and very, very relaxed, his wines are precise and expressive, quite a contrast. His terroir is fantastic, Grand Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Rolle, Roussane, Chardonnay and Muscat Petit Grains grown on clay soils with limestone rocks over a blue marl subsoil. I went to the estate to help with the 2013 vintage and we tasted the Grand Blanc with a sommelier from Pierre-Gagnaire, a 3 Michelin Star rstaurant in Paris, he loved it and his description was very simple, oh 'c'est expressif ca! ' This is a wine for drinking in my view any time, any place, with any food, but it is quite full and rich so for those used to lighter whites, it would be for richer fish dishes, white meat and provencal style foods, it is simply delicious wine. It is a white wine which ages fabulously well, in fact, we have one bottle of 2007 just waiting for the right moment. In Magnum, Grand Blanc will go for decades so this might be a bottle to keep and savour in a few years when fully ripe!
