Philippe Milan Pommard AOC is 100% Pinot Noir
This wine has been aged in Oak (25% new Oak)
This is a little more structured and the style goes more toward the "vin de garde", or wines meant to age. This wine needs some food, or sometime in the decanter right now. It is well structured and reminds me of a Volnay. As a matter of fact, the parcel is located right next to Volnay. The finish is long and still quite juicy with chewy tannins lingering.
Made from 100 percent 100% Dafni.
The Dafní grape variety was saved from extinction by the Lyrarakis family, when it was planted in the “Psarades” family vineyard at 480 meter altitude in central Crete in the early '90s.
Its name derives from the laurel (bay leaf) plant, which is called “Dáfni” in Greek, as the wine produced resembles these aromas. A wine of bright yellow color with a distinctive herbal character of laurel and rosemary with citrus fruit aromas, a refreshing mouthfeel and an intense aromatic aﬅertaste.
Pairs with salads with aromatic herbs, sea food, asparagus, white meat and if you can find them, Cretan pies!
