The label designed by Roberto Hollis represents the two female dogs of the Domaine: Luna (the white jack russel which means the moon) and Gaia (the black labrador which means the earth).
About the producer: Domaine Milan was created in 1956 by Robert Milan, Henri’s father. It was here that Henri planted his first vine at the age of eight. Back then, the land was used for conventional farming methods. This was one of the big changes that were heralded when Henri took over in 1984 and moved towards organic production.
A note of amontillado sherry on the nose mingles with dried fruits, caramel, Provencal ‘garrigues’ aromas and is followed by a great textured palate. Luna & Gaia will undoubtedly age well too!
