Le Jardin Domaine Milan, natural wine, 100% Merlot, old vines, same soil as Pomerol. Le Jardin is a rare wine. 100% Merlot, the soils are made of clay with limestone screes on a subsoil of blue marls, the same soil type as can be found in Pomerol. This cuvée is called by some people, ‘Provencal Petrus’ thanks to the nature of the soils and the grape variety used. It is certainly a wine of great class, medium colour, full bodied but very fresh with supple dark fruits, minerals, notes of herbs, bell pepper and leather as it matures. Class, class wine.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. From that terroir which Henri knows how to capture and express in the wines, there is an extra layer of depth, the wine is alive and open and brings you the intoxicating scents and flavours of a Provencal summer in every sip!
