Sommelier notes: The Milhau Lacugue estate has been in the center of history for millenia. It was an ancient Roman farm that originally took its name from the founder, Emilius and his estate the Villa Emilio. It is situated on an ancient trading and travelling route, which included the Commanderie de Campagnoles and the Hospitaliers of St John of Jerusalem, who owned this estate from the 12th to the 18th century. Eventually bought by the Milhau family the estate was extremely well placed to welcome and offer sustenance to the many pilgrims travelling through the region to Compostela.
Cuvée Magali is the most elegant family member here with the Lacugue family. All the grapes are destemmed before maceration. The guarantees softer tannins and more fruit character. A lovely elegant, fruity wine is the result. Hints of blackberry and blueberry, some light spice (cloves, bay leaf) and a gentle, smooth wine in the mouth. Drink this wine with pasta dishes with tomato sauces, pizza, and grilled vegetables. Keep for 3-5 years if you can but this wine is lovely already!
