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 in early September. The vineyard is
sustainably managed in accordance with the HVE Certification.
Winemaking
The grapes were cool-harvested at night and then each variety was vinified separately.
Fermentation took place with selected yeasts, at controlled cool temperatures with
maximum protection again oxidation. The wines were carefully blended to create this
cuvée, which was unoaked to retain its fruitiness.
Tasting Note
A refreshingly crisp wine with inviting aromas of fresh peach, leading to a vibrant palate
of grapefruit and pear with a delicate hint of spice on the finish.
