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 as well as wines from the Gard. The Dalle family makes every effort to produce wines that are true to the “terroir” of their region.
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.
Campuget’s 2011 Blanc, a Grenache Blanc and Viognier blend, offers an attractive, moderately intense, honeyed, citrus, and melon accented nose, terrific fruit purity, medium body, a lush, open-knit texture, and an excellent dry finish. It is a delicious, mouth-filling, fruit-filled, dry white that requires consumption over the next 8-12 months. Why wait ?… this is delicious now!
