Domaine Henri Milan, 'Le Vallon' 2003
A chance to nab and drink some mature Milan? Take it. This guy is mature, so give him a little air so he can open up, especially on the palate. Anyway. Got that five spice thing going on that good, old Grenache gets alongside some sweet fruit and domineering tertiary action.
