Herbal and garrique notes with hints of chocolate and liquorice. Warm and savoury.
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. Strict canopy management provides the vines with just the right amount of sun and shade to produce healthy and balanced fruit. The soils are formed of pebbles with alluvia.
Made from selected grapes from the best vines on the estate, La Sommelière is the ultimate expression of the Campuget terroir. The wine was traditionally vinified, followed by maturation in oak barriques for a period of two months. Bottled without filtration.
Concentrated with ripe Syrah notes of chocolate and spice complemented by toasty oak.
A delicious red that goes well with grilled or roasted meat and game.
