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
Strict canopy management to provide the vines with just the right amount of sun and
shade to produce healthy and balanced fruit. The vines 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 relatively uniform soils
are marked by large pebbles on gentle, typically south-facing slopes.
A short maceration on the skins took place to extract the colour. The must was then
fermented for between six to eight days in temperature controlled vats at a maximum
temperature of 25°C. No oak was used in the vinification and as a result, the style of the
wine is pure, fresh and aromatic.
