Le Campuget Syrah Grenache Rose VdP du Gard
Chateau de Campuget is a top quality estate near Nimes with a long history. In its cellar, tradition and progress unite to provide aroma, finesse and bouquet. Chateau de Campuget deploys a wide range of traditional Rhone cepage to produce full, easy and spicy wines.
The Château de Campuget is, above all, the adventure of a Northern family who came to settle not far from the Mediterranean during the war… on the slopes of the Nîmes ‘Costières’.
Since 1942, pur sole aim has been to produce Rhône Valley Grands Vins, respecting the heritage of soil and its identity. The round Rhône stones, the Southern sun, the Mistral winds and the Syrah and Grenache grapes are the basic elements which form the identity of Campuget.
The Vineyard is situated 15 km South of Nîmes near the village of Manduel, right in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ Costières de Nîmes. It’s principal characteristic is it’s soil formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been rolled by many overflows of the Rhône river thousands of years ago.
These pebbles permits the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and thanks 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 average age of the vineyard is about 25 years. The main varieties of grape are Syrah and Grenache for the reds and rosés and White Grenache, Roussane and Viognier for the whites, as are the most renowned vineyards in the Rhône Valley.
Le Campuget Syrah Grenache Rose VdP du Gard shows a dry and pale fruity rose from the south of the Rhone Valley. Delicate yet delicious with gentle strawberry notes and a lovely long finish, summer in a glass.
