Côtes de Gascogne: Domaine Millet Rosé 2014

The Domaine Millet rosé is made predominantly from the obscure Egiodola grape (which was new even
to Jancis Robinson!) and 20% Cabernet Franc. It has lovely crushed berry scents and flavours and a bright, fruity palate, making it every bit as commendable as its white Ugni Blanc / Colombard sibling.


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.
