Winemaker's Notes:

Wonderful value in Rose - perfect for summer! Its color is an intense peony pink . Its bouquet is very aromatic, exhaling scents of small red fruits such as raspberries or blackcurrants. In the mouth there is a perfect balance between vivacity and mellowness. The final taste is very long, leaving an delicate impression of fruitiness.

"Chateau de Campuget is the top estate in the arid, windswept, Provencal region of Nimes."
Robert Parker

About Chateau de Campuget:

Château de Campuget in Costieres de Nimes is a beautiful wine property dating back to 1640. The soil is typical for the region, with many stones that force roots to find water deep in the lower layers of clay, contributing additional character to the wine. The property is managed by Jean-Lin Dalle, assisted by his son Franck-Lin, named after one of Jean-Lin's heroes, Benjamin Franklin. Château de Campuget which has belonged to the Dalle family since 1941, produces AOC Costieres de Nimes wines.

BELIEFS: The Dalle family makes every effort to produce wines that are true to the "terroir" of the Costieres de Nimes.

NOTES: Château de Campuget wines are produced by respecting tradition while utilizing the most modern oenological techniques. Although equipped with stainless-steel tanks and modern tools, wines are made and matured in a traditional way, and quality is strictly controlled from the vineyard to the bottle. Chateau De Campuget's main varieties are Syrah and Grenache Noir for the grapevines classified in AOC. For white wines, the company uses Roussanne and Grenache Blanc in Costieres de Nimes and Chardonnay in Vin de Pays.
