An elegant Viognier with hints of nectarine, ginger and honeysuckle. Precise, crisp and balanced on the palate, with round, generous fruit and a long, elegant finish. Perfect for serving chilled as an apéritif, or with spicy dishes, such as a Thai or Indian takeaway, if you don’t want to cook. One of the best Viogniers I have ever tried! And it comes in a particularly handsome glass-stoppered bottle, too.
Château de Campuget is a beautiful property in Costières de Nîmes, an appellation on the up that’s a fine hunting ground for well-priced, characterful wines, especially from smaller producers such as this one. Established in 1942, the château itself was built in 1753, which is also when the first vines were planted here (hence the name of this wine). 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.
