Costières de Nimes was elevated from VDQS to appellation contrôlée status in 1986. It is effectively part of the Rhône since the climate, soil and topography are so similar to those just over the river in the southern Cotes-du-Rhône vineyards. The relatively uniform soils are marked by large pebbles on gentle, typically south-facing slopes. Co-operative cellars are less important here than in most of the Languedoc and most of the development and experimentation is taking place on the smaller estates.
Château de Campuget is a splendid, top quality estate near Nimes with a long history. The secret of its success is its selection of only the best grapes, from stony vineyards, like those of the Rhône, which reflect the sun and help the grapes reach perfect ripeness.
