Le Vallon 2019 - Domaine Henri Milan - Vin de France
Is a cuvée made from a blend of old Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault vines aged in biodynamics. The grapes are harvested manually and then macerated for only 5 days in whole grapes in concrete tanks. The wine will then be high not very long in these same vats, then bottled without fining or filtration.
Le Vallon is a seductive wine, juicy and unctuous with its typical notes of the region ofspices soft, of black fruits mature and garrigue. The mouth is silky and greedy.
Despite its smoothness, Le Vallon is a wine of character to be associated with rather spicy dishes and a piece of mature meat.
Located in Saint Rémy de Provence, north of the Alpilles mountain range, Domaine MILAN was created in 1956 by Robert Milan, and later taken over by his son Henri in 1986.
Henri had the intuition that his terroir was made up of a wide variety of mineral layers, which was confirmed by Claude Bourguignon, a famous microbiologist, who analysed the "la carrée" parcel in April 1996. This analysis highlighted the blue marl terroir, similar to the terroirs of the Jura and Chablis, whose potential to produce great white wines is no longer in doubt.
For two decades, the viticulture and vinification have been worked biodynamically, without synthetic inputs, with little or no sulphite for certain vintages.
For Henri and his children, making wine is not a matter of technique. It is more a question of a natural accompaniment of what the vineyard offers, in organic and biodynamic methods.
His son Théophile continues the adventure today, preserving the style and sensitivity of the estate. The result is original and complex wines which each carry their own terroir. A harmony whose finesse and grain often evoke Burgundy ... but in Provence.
