2017 CAMPUGET VIOGNIER 1783
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 Franck-Lin Dalle, named after one of his dad’s heroes, Benjamin Franklin.
The name 1753 refers to the date on a document that was found on the property of Campuget mentioning their vineyards.
The 1753 Viognier is 100% Viognier. The grapes are harvested at full maturity and then pressed with a pneumatic press. The juice sits in wooden barrels for 6 months before being clarified and bottled.
This wine has a bouquet of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, peaches, and tropical fruits. It is medium-bodied and filled with fruit yet structured, with good underlying acidity to provide freshness and focus.
