Tasting:  There are grape varieties that only accept one climate, one region, this is not the case with Merlot which expresses itself magnificently at Domaine Milan. Le Jardin is a wine that combines finness and concentration. The nose releases aromas of black fruits and truffle which are found in the mouth. The tannins are smooth and silky and the finish elegant.

Nestled at the foothills of Les Alpilles the story of Domaine Milan started in 1955. In 1986, Henri Milan took over with the ambition of making the best possible wine with respect to the environment. The Domain includes 10 ha planted with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Rolle, Muscat.

In the mid 90’s his encounter with Claude Bourguignon (famous microbiologist) and Claude Courtois (Domaine Les Cailloux du Paradis) helped and convinced him to further enhance the identity of his great terroir and ameliorate his winemaking.

Since 2000, Henri has made wine based on their origins blue marl on limestone and yellow sandstone. The reds such Le Papillon or Le CLOS have gained in elegance and freshness thanks to shorter macerations with whole clusters and natural vinification. The famous cuvee Grand Blanc, his blend of all his white grapes, shows more tension and salinity. 

Since 2014, Théo, Henri's son, and his wife Nathalie have joined the estate and brings a new lease of life, crafting elegant wines, using no chemicals, no additives, no commercial yeasts and, in some cases, no added sulphur.
