Costières de Nimes, the easternmost appellation of the Languedoc, is effectively part of the Rhône since the climate, soil and topography are so similar to those just over the river in the southern Côtes-du-Rhône vineyards. The relatively uniform soils are marked by large pebbles on gentle, typically south-facing slopes. Château de Campuget was established in 1942 and is a top quality estate near Nîmes, steeped in history. The Château itself was built in 1753 and at the same time the first vines were planted, prompting the 1753 range of wines which mark this historic date. The fusion of tradition and progression unite in the cellars here, producing wines with integrity, finesse and a wonderful expression of terroir, from a wide range of traditional Rhône varieties.
Strict canopy management to provide the vines with just the right amount of sun and shade to produce healthy and balanced fruit. The vines benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, which bring the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity in early September. The vines are grown in pebbly soil with alluvia.
A short maceration on the skins took place to extract the colour. The must was then fermented for between six to eight days in temperature controlled vats at a maximum temperature of 25°C. No oak was used in the vinification and as a result, the style of the wine is pure, fresh and aromatic.
A fragrant nose of violets and soft black fruit characters, which are followed through onto the smooth palate. A refreshing and easy to drink style.
Perfect slightly chilled as a summer red. Ideal on its own or to accompany light food.
