Henri Milan Luna & Gaia 2018
Henri and his son Theo make beautiful wines out of primo spots in the heart of Provence, they farm organically, use minimal sulfur and do not add chemicals.
Notes from Living Wines:
The Luna & Gaïa is an extraordinary skin contact wine from the Milan family which, this year, is mainly Vermentino (Rolle) with the remainder comprising Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. It was pressed and the skins remained with the juice for 20 days in a concrete tank. The juice was then transferred to a fibreglass tank where it settled for one year.
The name from this wine is derived from the two dogs of the domaine. Luna is a white Jack Russel and Gaïa is a black Labrador. The label was created by Roberto Hollis.
It has developed into an amazing wine! It has great length, beautiful soft tannins and a complexity that is very appealing.
This wine will match a wide range of foods, but can also serve very well as an aperitif wine if you want to mull over the complexity and the elegance that a skin contact wine can offer.
