Chateau de Campuget La Sommeliere is the Campuget estate's prestige cuvee, made only from its oldest Syrah vines. It is matured in oak for 12 months without filtration, to preserve its intense aromas of garrigue herb and sweet berry fruit. On the palate, this wine has great depth and structure, with a very long finish.

More info

Château de Campuget is a splendid, top quality estate near Nimes, with a long history. The secret of its success is its selection of only the best grapes, from stony vineyards, like those of the Rhône, which reflect the sun and help the grapes reach perfect ripeness.

Costières de Nimes was elevated from VDQS to appellation contrôlée status in 1986. It is effectively part of the Rhône since the climate, soil and topography are so similar to those just over the river in the southern Cotes-du-Rhône vineyards. The relatively uniform soils are marked by large pebbles on gentle, typically south-facing slopes. Co-operative cellars are less important here than in most of the Languedoc and most of the development and experimentation is taking place on the smaller estates.

Chateau de Campuget

Château de Campuget was established in 1942 and is a top quality estate near Nîmes, which is 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. In 2019, Château de Campuget was certified as Haute Valeur Environmentale, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.
