History and Geography
With its 200 hectares, Domaine Millegrand is one of the largest wine domains in the Languedoc. It stretches along the Canal du Midi at Trebes not far from the heritage city of Carcassonne.
It was given to the Abbey of Lagrasse in the 12th century and belonged to the clergy up until 2003 when the Bonfils family acquired it following an agreement with the Bishop of Carcassonne. The wines are made in lined cement vats and aged in a 700 barrel capacity cellar.
The Vineyard and its Terroir
The vineyard is situated on a gravelly plateau and clay hillocks, well exposed to the sun and subject to the Tramontane wind. It is composed of Syrah, Merlot, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvedre and Sauvignon Blanc.
