The vineyard is situated 15 km south of Nîmes near the village of Manduel, right in the heart of the ‘Appellation d’Origine Protégée’ Costières de Nîmes. Its principal characteristic is its soil formed of ‘gress’, an accumulation of rounded pebbles that have been rolled by many overflows of the Rhône river thousands of years ago. These pebbles permit the vines to grow in the best possible conditions and thanks to this natural soil filter, the vine’s roots can easily draw the necessary water for their growth.
The vines also benefit from the Mediterranean sunshine, which brings the grapes to perfect maturity and allows them to be picked at maximum phenolic maturity in early September.
Chateau de Campuget Rose is obtained by "bleeding," a process by means of running off the juices when they are put in the tank. They are then reduced to a very low temperature (3°C) in order to extract aromas of fresh fruit. The fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of around 18°C.
