About the Producer
Château de Campuget was created in 1942 and is a revered estate near Nîmes. It was constructed in 1753 and the same year the very first vines were planted, inspiring the creation of the '1753' range of wines. Winemaker Franck-Lin Dalle now oversees the estate, which is the 3rd generation of his family to manage the château. His approach combines traditional techniques and modern progression to craft a range of exquisite wines bursting with terroir character using classic Rhône grapes. In 2019, Château de Campuget was granted Haute Valeur Environmentale certification for its commitment to intricate biodiversity practices, carefully managed fertilizer usage, and dedicated water resource management.
Vineyard and Winery
The vineyard is situated 15 kilometres south of Nîmes, near the village of Manduel, near the village of Manduel, in the heart of the Costières de Nîmes. The average age of the vines is approximately 25 years. The main characteristic of the vineyard is the soil, which is formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been deposited by the overflowing Rhône River thousands of years ago. These pebbles allow the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and due 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 two varieties were harvested at optimal maturity and the grapes from each variety were pressed and vinified separately. Cool fermentation took place at controlled temperatures with selected yeasts to preserve the purity of fruit flavours. The wines were then artfully blended to make this cuvée
