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.

VINTAGE:
2020 was an exceptional vintage for Campuget. Spring brought timely, gentle rain, just before and after flowering. The summer saw classic hot, Mediterranean weather, without the heatwaves of recent years, and a gentle storm during August refreshed the vines, enabling them to reach perfect maturity. The canopies were plentiful, providing important shade and the vineyards were in excellent health. Picking started on the earliest ever date -17th August. The grapes delivered outstanding fruit concentration and excellent balancing acidity.

VINEYARD:
The terroir in the vineyard is characterised by the ‘Galets’ or large pebbles that are remnants of Alpine glaciers that have been smoothed over millennia by the Rhône. These pebbles absorb and store the heat from the sun during the day and release it at night, encouraging the vines to ripen the grapes. The vines here have established a deep root system enabling them to draw the mineral elements they need to grow and providing a complexity of flavour to the resulting wine. The Mediterranean sunshine is vital to the maturation and phenolic ripeness of the grapes.

WINEMAKING:
This wine was vinified under temperature controlled conditions, preserving its freshness and aromatic purity. It was made from pressed juice using a rapid bleeding off or “saignée” method, in order to obtain the delicate rosé colour. Beautifully packaged, incorporating a glass stopper closure.

TASTING NOTE:
A classic rose petal colour, this elegant, dry rosé shows aromatic notes of grapefruit and delicate citrus hints, through to a refreshing palate of red berry fruits with a lifted finish.

Syrah 80%, Vermentino 20%.
