bright fresh fruit through to a crisp finish.
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.
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.
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
The grapes were cool-harvested at night, then each variety was vinified separately.
Fermentation took place at a controlled cool temperature with maximum protection
again oxidation. The wines were carefully blended to create this cuvée, which was
unoaked to retain its fruitiness.
Delicate peachy aromas lead to a palate of bright fresh fruit with a hint of spice. A
refreshingly crisp wine with a persistent finish.
Ideal with spicy food such as Indian or Thai cuisine.
