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. 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. 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
Delicate peachy aromas lead to a palate of bright fresh fruit with a hint of spice. A
refreshingly crisp wine with a persistent finish.
