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.
Costières de Nimes, the easternmost appellation of the Languedoc, is effectively part of the Rhône since the climate, soil and topography are so similar to those just over the river in the southern Côtes-du-Rhône vineyards. The relatively uniform soils are marked by large pebbles on gentle, typically south-facing slopes.
The grapes were traditionally vinified at controlled temperatures.
A full, rich and complex nose with notes of raspberry and cassis and an enticing smoky character. On the palate, the wine is round and velvety with generous blackberry fruit flavours which are sustained throughout.
A great accompaniment to a slow roasted lamb and grilled meats.
Grenache 50%, Syrah 50%
