Château de Campuget is a family estate located between Nimes and Arles that has belonged to the Dalle family since 1941, however there are documents that show the vineyards date as far back as 1753. The 160 hectare estate is known for its soil of ‘gress’, “an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been rolled by many overflows of the Rhône River thousands of years ago”. The focus of the Dalle family has been to respect this terrior and produce great Rhône wines. The ‘1753’ Syrah honours the winemaking history at the estate, it is sourced from 15 year old vines and produced in a traditional manner, without any oak ageing.
Inky purple in colour with aromas of black currant, blackberry, and pine forest. Tasting very similar to its aromas, black currant and blackberry fruits joined earth elements in the medium body, whilst black tea tannins, pink peppercorn and traces of dark chocolate comprised the pleasant finish. Straightforward and easy drinking, each velvety sip will keep you reaching for more.
