Papillon Rouge Milan, 0 Sulphur, Grenache, Natural, Raw wine! Sans soufre ajoute rouge is like tasting wine straight from the vat. At lunch during the harvest, we opened a few bottles with an assiette de charcuterie et fromage and gosh it was is hard to go back to picking grapes after that. The wine is so easy to drink, so fluid and relaxed, the acidity is so refreshing and the flavours so natural, wild rosemary, herbes de provence shine through the red berry fruit. The tannins provide much needed structure and a savoury edge. There is no added sulphur at all, even at bottling so the final wine has around 8-15 parts per million from fermentation, about as low as it can be. This is a must try, great wine that shows the best way is the natural way!

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.
