ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Henri Milan Reynard Rebels
Henri Milan Reynar Rebels is from organic vineyard sites in Chateaurenard originally intended for the co-op. The Reynard Rebels was created by Cyril Zang’s son at Domaine Henri Milan. This is a blending of two different vintages – 2017’s Merlot and Carignan, and the 2018 Carignan. Both undergo a 5-day whole-cluster fermentation, followed by aging in concrete vat for 1 year. Unfined, unfiltered with a dash of SO2 at bottling.
While the nose is mineral and somewhat spicy, this is a fresh, crunchy red with a delicate smattering of tannin and an irresistible, fruit-forward palate. Strawberry and juicy red cherries, a soft mouthfeel, and wonderful acidity. A perfect pairing for lamb, spaghetti, and meatballs or a simple slice.
About Henri Milan
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 and with respect to the environment. 10 ha planted with Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay, Roussanne, Rolle, Muscat. In the mid-’90s 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 as Le Papillon or Le CLOS have gained in elegance and freshness thanks to shorter macerations with whole clusters and vinified naturally. The famous cuvée Grand Blanc, his blend of all his white grapes, shows more tension and salinity.
