Chateau de Campuget Invitation Rose 2017

 

 

 

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.

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 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. Strict canopy management is undertaken to provide the vines with just the right amount of sun and shade to produce healthy and balanced fruit. 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.

Winemaking

The colour was obtained through a short maceration of between four to 12 hours, according to the variety. Fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks with the temperature controlled at 18°C in order to extract the maximum aromas. After racking and filtration, the wine was immediately bottled at the Château.

Tasting Note

Lovely pink colour with fresh red berry aromas of strawberry and raspberry, enhanced with delicate floral notes. This is a fruity but serious rosé, echoing the bright berried fruit flavours on the palate, through to a crisp and elegant finish.

Serving Suggestion

Perfect for dining "al fresco" to accompany summer cuisine.
