Producer Note
Château de Campuget was established in 1942 and is a top quality estate near
Nîmes, which is 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. Now in the hands of winemaker Franck-Lin Dalle, who is the third
generation of his family to run the estate, the fusion of tradition and progression unites
in the cellars where Franck-Lin deftly crafts wines with integrity, finesse and a wonderful
expression of terroir from a wide range of traditional Rhône varieties. In 2019, Château
de Campuget was certified as Haute Valeur Environmentale, which officially recognises
the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation,
plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.
Vintage
2020 was an exceptional vintage for Campuget. Spring brought timely, gentle rain, just
before and after flowering. The summer saw classic hot, Mediterranean weather,
without the heatwaves of recent years, and a gentle storm during August refreshed the
vines, enabling them to reach perfect maturity. The canopies were plentiful, providing
important shade and the vineyards were in excellent health. Picking started on the
earliest ever date -17th August. The grapes delivered outstanding fruit concentration
and excellent balancing acidity.
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 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.
