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 rains,
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 sustainably cultivated grapes come from the Château’s vineyard, situated 15
kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel in the heart of the AOP of the
Costières de Nîmes. However, winemaker Frank-Lin Dalle has chosen to designate
this wine as Vin de France to distinguish the distinctive style of this wine, which has
been made without sulphites. Sourced from the best plots of Grenache on the
estate, where the main characteristic is the soil, which is formed of ‘galets’, an
accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been deposited by the overflowing
Rhône River thousands of years ago. Due to this natural soil filter; the vine’s roots can
easily draw the necessary water for their growth. The grapes also benefit from the
Mediterranean sunshine, encouraging maximum phenolic maturity.


Winemaking
Vinified without the addition of sulphites. The selected berries were destemmed,
crushed and cold macerated. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts and
vinified in stainless steel tanks at 20°, with two pump-overs per day, lasting for 10
days. Short post fermentation maceration took place to retain the purity of fruit,
before undergoing malolactic conversion. Bottled early to retain freshness.


Tasting Note
Characterised by freshness, finesse and delicacy, this Grenache offers lovely purity of
fruit with cherry notes layered with subtle floral aromas and spicy notes. Soft, supple
tannins lend structure to this elegant wine.
