Wine of the Week: Rosè by Château Campuget
Above: The Château de Campuget.
At Vino Vino, we love rosè. And not just when the heat is on. We believe that it should be drunk year-round, which is why we always offer a glass of pink to our discerning clientele.
But, there is something about the clear, warm Spring air — the kind that only graces Central Texas for about 5 minutes — that makes a rosè taste that much sweeter.
Château de Campuget embodies all the lip-smackin’ lusciousness that you’ve come to expect from our pink wines.
Born in the appellation Costières de Nîmes, this property dates back to the mid-17th century. Southern France provides the perfect canvas for many a rosè, this being no exception.
Château de Campuget is a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache, born from vines grown in rocky soils perfectly fit for making kick-ass wine. This wine hits our spot with acidity and juicy fruit like a basket full of fresh berries.
Come in and toast to the ephemeral nature of pleasant weather in Austin with a cold glass of Campuget on our patio. And if the moment has passed, we’ll serve it at our air-conditioned bar too.
