Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
The Vineyard is situated 15 kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel, in
the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ the Costières de Nîmes. The
average age of the vines is about 25 years. The main characteristic of the vineyard is
the soil, which is formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have
been deposited by the overflowing Rhône River thousands of years ago. These
pebbles allow the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and due to this
natural soil filter; the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth.
Strict canopy management is undertaken to provide the vines with just the right
amount of sun and shade to produce healthy and balanced fruit. The vines also
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.
Winemaking
The colour was obtained through a short maceration of between four to 12 hours,
according to the variety. Fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks with the
temperature controlled at 18°C in order to extract the maximum aromas. After
racking and filtration, the wine was immediately bottled at the Château.
Tasting Note
Lovely pink colour with fresh red berry aromas of strawberry and raspberry,
enhanced with delicate floral notes. This is a fruity but serious rosé, echoing the
bright berried fruit flavours on the palate, through to a crisp and elegant finish.
