Domaine Milan Vin de France Brut Nature Blanc 2019
'This is another dry sparkling wine from the Milan family with this one being fermented from Grenache Blanc (70%) and Bourboulenc and Roussanne which were all grown on clay and limestone in the Eyragues vineyard which lies a few kilometres immediately north of the St Remy de Provence.
As with the rosé above, this is not a pet nat but rather has been made using the méthode traditionelle which is a two stage process very similar to the process used to make Champagne.
This is where a still white wine is made first and then, when the wine is bottled, yeast is added to start a second fermentation. No sugar is added after the fermentation which is why you see the words Non Dosé on the back label.
The juice spent 18 months on lees and was then disgorged and topped up with the same wine.
It is a light, lingering, savoury drink with excellent length. Good for matching to a wide range of foods.'
