Château de Campuget 1753 Syrah, 2016
Château de Campuget
Taste Profile Where it's from
From France’s Mediterranean Rhone delta where the flat terroir resembles Chateauneuf's plateau (just up river) where large boulders give off their heat acquired during day to the vineyards at night. Good mid-red colour with a satisfying typical syrah nose of black fruits, spice and herbs. It is full flavoured and quite ripe, has a medium body and very pleasant acidity. Good long lasting finish. - John Brownsdon
About the Wine
Costières de Nimes, formerly part of the Languedoc, is now classed as part of the Rhône since the climate, soil and topography are so similar to those just over the river in the southern Côtes-du-Rhône vineyards.
The relatively uniform soils are marked by large pebbles on gentle, typically south-facing slopes. Château de Campuget was established in 1942 and is a top quality estate near Nîmes, 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. The fusion of tradition and progression unite in the cellars here, producing wines with integrity, finesse and a wonderful expression of terroir, from a wide range of traditional Rhône varieties.
Goes well with
This full-bodied wine can hold up to intense flavours, so will pair well with dishes such as barbequed pork, rare meats, strong cheeses and also surprisingly very rich chocolate gateaux’s.
