DOMAINE MILHAU LACUGUE
Sauvignon Blanc IGP 2016
Estate Bottled
 

Château Milhau Lacugue is located North from the village of Puisserguier, West from Beziers. Between 88 and 205 m high, its vineyards receive a lot of wind, which makes for one of its main characters, major temperature differences.
As for many properties in this area, an old Roman villa can be found at its origin : Villa Emilio, Emilius’ farm, which stood on one of the Roman roads that ran around the Mediterranean.
Owned by the Order of the Hospitaliers in the Middle Ages, Milhau is a rest area on the way to Compostellla. Several corner stones on the Domain still bear the 8 branches star of the Order.
Sold as a Nation’s property after the French Revolution, the Estate will not be split until 1927. It will then take 40 years to put it back together. This is done from 1969 by the Lacugue family.

 
Soil

Jean Lacugue is now in charge of the château and its 60 hectares of Saint Chinian, Coteaux du Languedoc and Vins de Pays, spread among 120 hectares of olive trees, garrigue and blackberry bushes where cicadas chirp in Summer.
Sauvignon blanc is not a varietal one expects too much in Languedoc.
Here at Milhau, grown on a soil of sand, gravels and limestone, it has the opportunity to show its acidity and aromatic character

 
Wine making

Completely destemmed, the harvest goes to a direct pressing and juices are then fermented in vat, with a bottling that comes rather early in order to keep the character of the wine.

 
Drinking Advice

Serve at 14 / 16°C.
Low in alcohol, the wine revals the full aroma of Sauvignon blanc, which one would not necessarily look for in the Saint Chinian area. Enjoy it with sea food, like fresh oysters from Bouzigues, only 20 miles from the estate..
