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 takes place to provide the vines with just the right
amount of sun and shade to produce healthy and balanced fruit. The vineyard soils
are pebbles with alluvia.
The grapes were gently pressed by a pneumatic press and then cool fermented in
temperature controlled tanks at 18°C, capturing the aromatic expression of the
grapes. The wine was kept in tank on its fine lees, which added complexity and
weight. Racking and filtration took place prior to estate bottling.
An expressive and aromatic nose of white stone fruits and floral notes, with a full,
fruity palate of apricots, peach and a hint of minerality. This delightful Rhône blend
has a lively and persistent finish.
Served at 14°C as the perfect accompaniment to summer-time meals, fresh salads
or at a BBQ.
