Tasting Notes
Vines have flourished here since Roman times, and the site of the Château was a resting place on the medieval pilgrim's route of St Jacques de Compostela. Jean Lacugue farms the family 120 hectare estate, half of which is under vine.

Jean Lacugue

One of our most exciting recent wine discoveries has been the Saint-Chinian made by Jean Lacugue at his Château Milhau-Lacugue, 12 kilometres West of Béziers, at Puisserguier. Jean has 100 hectares of vines which are south-east facing on limestone hills surrounded by olive groves. Terrific light levels and a long, sunny growing season ensure phenolic ripeness at the time of harvesting for this up-and-coming estate in a seriously underrated and therefore great value appellation.
