Le Grand Blanc Milan 2016, natural wine, field blend of local varieties including Grenache Blanc, Rolle, Roussane, Chardonnay, Muscat Petit Grains. Always an outstanding wine, the 2016 was a leaner vintage so the wine is released later than the more up front 2018. It is a wine of complexity and freshness, with notes of fennel on the nose, a firm terroir mouthfeel displaying minerality and tension. For any high quality foods from the south of France, this wine is a winner and a treat always.

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.
