This château Millegrand extends along the Canal du Midi in Trèbes, not far from Carcassonne.   It was given to the Abbey of Lagrasse in the 12th century and belonged to the clergy, until its purchase in 2003 by the Bonfils family after an agreement with the Bishopric of Carcassonne.

The winemaking is done in concrete vats and the Château has a barrel winery in barrels with a capacity of 700 hl.

The vineyard of Millegrand is set on a soil made up of gravelly trays and clay conch. Bathed in sunshine and swept by the tramontana, it is planted with Syrah, Merlot, Carignan, Cabernet-Sauvignon, Mourvèdre and Sauvignon.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine has a beautifully intense and deep red colour. At first, the nose offers small very ripe red and black fruits, followed by more complex menthol and peppery notes.

The palate is full-bodied, harmonious and fruity with fine, silky tannins.

Excellent with lamb cutlets, grilled duck breast, sirloin steak and mature cheeses.
