Sommelier note: 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.
It was love at first sight for Princess. It has the "glug glug factor" that makes it hard to stop tasting and sharing with family and friends. This 100% Vermentino is crisp and flavorful. Classic wine law in the Appellation requires blending grape varietals. If you make (a splendid!) wine only using one single grape, you make a Vin de Pays. Vermentino is a true Mediterranean grape and loves the dry climate. It offers nice fruity tones (grapefruit, lemon) but also floral notes (freshly cut grass, flower blossoms) so it's perfect wine for a summer’s day! It also loves food anytime of year so get your seafood and shellfish plates out and have a sea-fest! This wine is best at 8-10 C. degrees.
