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. Now in the hands of winemaker Franck-Lin Dalle, who is the third generation of his family to run the estate, the fusion of tradition and progression unites in the cellars where Franck-Lin deftly crafts wines with integrity, finesse and a wonderful expression of terroir from a wide range of traditional Rhône varieties. In 2019, Château de Campuget was certified as Haute Valeur Environmentale, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.

VINEYARD:
The sustainably cultivated grapes come from the Château’s vineyard, situated 15 kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel in the heart of the AOP of the Costières de Nîmes. However, winemaker Frank-Lin Dalle has chosen to designate this wine as Vin de France to distinguish the distinctive style of this wine, which has been made without sulphites. Sourced from the best plots of Grenache on the estate, where the main characteristic is the soil, which is formed of ‘galets’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been deposited by the overflowing Rhône River thousands of years ago. Due to this natural soil filter; the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth. The grapes also benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, encouraging maximum phenolic maturity.

WINEMAKING:
Vinified without the addition of sulphites. The selected berries were destemmed, crushed and cold macerated. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts and vinified in stainless steel tanks at 20°, with two pump-overs per day, lasting for 10 days. Short post fermentation maceration took place to retain the purity of fruit, before undergoing malolactic conversion. Bottled early to retain freshness.

TASTING NOTE:
Characterised by freshness, finesse and delicacy, this Grenache offers lovely purity of fruit with cherry notes layered with subtle floral aromas and spicy notes. Soft, supple tannins lend structure to this elegant wine.
