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.
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. 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 which assured elegance in
the resulting wine.
Winemaking
Harvested at full maturity, the ripe grapes were taken immediately to be pressed, then
the must was chilled and settled. Vinified in the traditional manner, a proportion of the
wine was matured in tank with the remainder matured in used oak for a period of three
months prior to the final blend. Beautifully packaged, incorporating a glass stopper.
