Le Premier Milan Pinot Noir, natural wine, 100% Pinot Noir, only the third vintage of this rare Pinot from Provence. Milan has always been the Burgundy of Provence and so it was only a matter of time before they planted and started to produce wine from this grape. Le Premier Milan is a wine from immense complexity, subtlety and class, drink as if drinking fine Cotes de Nuit. The 2020 was a fine vintage and will reward ageing.

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.
