Chateau de Campuget Invitation White 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

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. Strict canopy management takes place to provide the vines with just the right amount of sun and shade to produce healthy and balanced fruit. The vineyard soils are pebbles with alluvia.

Winemaking

The grapes were gently pressed by a pneumatic press and then cool fermented in temperature controlled tanks at 18°C, capturing the aromatic expression of the grapes. The wine was kept in tank on its fine lees, which added complexity and weight. Racking and filtration took place prior to estate bottling.

Tasting Note

An expressive and aromatic nose of white stone fruits and floral notes, with a full, fruity palate of apricots, peach and a hint of minerality. This delightful Rhône blend has a lively and persistent finish.

Serving Suggestion

Served at 14°C as the perfect accompaniment to summer-time meals, fresh salads or at a BBQ.

Grape

Roussanne 55%, Grenache 35%, Viognier 10%
