2018 Le Grand Blanc
Domaine Milan’s Le Grand Blanc is a staff favourite.
It is an intense, elegant, refined, gorgeous white wine. This vintage sees Grenache Blanc, Rolle (the local name for Vermentino), Roussanne, Chardonnay and Muscat à Petit Grains used in the blend. All the varieties, from vines planted in the 1990s are direct pressed and fermented together in a large concrete tank. They are then aged, partly in foudre and partly barrel and, finally, more time in concrete tank. This is a beautiful wine that is fresh and lively now but will continue to change character and improve well into the future.
