The Domaine de Millet blanc is one of our best-selling wines, despite its humble I.G.P status, as it is unfailingly reliable and gives a lot of bang for your buck. This unashamed crowd-pleaser wine from the Côtes de Gascogne, a blend of Ugni Blanc and Colombard, has a bright, zesty palate with a whistle-clean finish and works well as an aperitif or partner to salads and seafood.

Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine Millet Colombard-Ugni Blanc 2014

The Domaine de Millet Côtes de Gascogne blanc is a dry white wine with grapefruit aromas and refreshingly tangy, unoaked fruit. It is vinified in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats and bottled rapidly to preserve the citrus fruit aromas.

The Gascony region, famous for Armagnac production, is now the source of good country wines. Domaine Millet blazed a trail for many followers, but it remains one of, if not the, best.


La Famille Dèche

La Famille Dèche

The Dèche family, whose considerable vine holdings lie just above Eauze in the Midi-Pyrenées, have resided at Château de Millet for over five generations. Today they make a range of Côtes de Gascogne wines on their 50-hectare estate, as well as Floc de Gascogne and Armagnac. Until the late 1980s, the Dèche family were predominantly producers of Bas Armagnac but, as this market diminished, the forward-thinking Francis Dèche began to diversify, planting Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Chardonnay along with Ugni Blanc to make good, dry, still wines for immediate consumption.
