Wine has been made at Château Camparnaud since 1879, but it was in 2000 that the domain came into the possession of the Dutch wine expert Marnix Engels who, in collaboration with the noble Chevron Villette family, managed to realize a world-class domain. The AOP Côtes de Provence wines are produced ecologically, with respect for people and nature. Terra Vitis is a national federation of farmers, traders and industry experts who are closely supervised around production methods and techniques. Together they strive for pure products of the highest quality while nature can be protected for the next generation.

The wines made at Château Camparnaud are among the absolute top and, given the small yields, are only available in the absolute top catering industry, with the exception of Grand Cru wines where you can also obtain these beautiful wines.

This Prestige Rose falls into the category of MIP (premium/Hydropathe), Minuity (Prestige and Or), Miraval and Chateau d'Esclans (whispering and rock angel) and is a bit higher in terms of level/quality. The Prestige is a blend of the typical Provence rose, namely Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Tibouren and Rolle. In the glass, this Château Camparnaud Prestige has a beautiful light salmon pink rosé and of course this is also a rosé that is produced with respect for Man and Nature and is ecologically certified: Terra Vitis.

The grapes come from the Côtes de Provence vineyards, which are also ecologically certified. The vines are on average between 20 and 60 years old and they are one of the few to use a tri-optique , so that only the best grapes make it to the selection. A Tri-optique machine is a very expensive machine and is a fairly recent principle that throws out the loose, affected grapes on the sorting table and with which the grapes are subjected to an optical analysis with a camera and removed if they are not the pre-set shape or color. These are very expensive machines that are mainly used in Burgundy by the absolute top brands. The grapes are harvested at night and very early in the morning. This is done because it is still cool in the hot Provencal summer and so the grapes can be brought to the Château as quickly as possible to monitor the freshness and avoid premature fermentation. All grapes are destemmed, so only the best ones make it into the wine. Only temperature-controlled stainless steel cuves are used for all wines, no wood, in order to let the pure expression of the terroir speak as much as possible.

In the Winery at the Château, the following steps are carried out:

- vibrating plate for separating tank juice and grapes
- tri-optique for grape selection: only perfect fruit goes through to the next step
- cold treatment to prevent oxidation and color change
- pressing
- cold stabilization of must for 7 days
- fermentation for 10 to 14 days
- the wine matures on its lees ('sur lies') with regular stirring.
- assembling different grapes ('blending')
- final bottling in the bottle

The Château Camparnaud is very elegant, fruity and nicely dry. In the nose, the main notes of fresh summer fruit with some raspberry, red currant, passion fruit and a hint of strawberry, but which also stands out in a spicy and somewhat mineral tone. In the mouth the wine is round, fresh with a perfect acidity which makes this a great glass to enjoy, but gastronomically this is also a wonderful wine with spicy Asian food, a Paella or a BBQ with beautiful products (delicious piece smoked salmon on the green egg) but goes well with many dishes in the Mediterranean kitchen. In addition, the presentation also makes it clear that we are not talking about just any rosé here, but about a top version that comes into your glass without poison, pesticides or artificial fertilizer.

Vineyard for 2022 Château Camparnaud Prestige Rosé

Château Camparnaud is located in Provence in France. Campernaud's wines are ecologically produced, with great respect for people and nature. Terra Vitis is a national federation of farmers, traders and industry experts under strict supervision of their production methods and techniques. Together with Terra Vitis, the winery strives for pure products of the highest quality while also protecting the beautiful nature for the next generation.

The AOP Côtes de Provence vineyards of Château Campernaud are strategically positioned in a valley, in the green heart of Provence. All grapes come from these vineyards where the vines are between 20 and 60 years old, which gives character and structure to the rosé. The vineyards are planted with the very suitable grape varieties for this region such as syrah, grenache, cinsault, mourvèdre, tibouren and rolle. This variety of grape varieties is possible due to the difference in soil types, height differences and location in relation to the sun.

Provence has very hot (late) summers, so harvesting the grapes must be done in the early morning, when it is still nice and cool. During harvesting, the grapes are also immediately destemmed. The grapes are then transported to the winery as quickly as possible so that the essential freshness is preserved to the maximum and premature fermentation is avoided. In the winery, the grapes on the sorting table are subjected to an optical analysis by a camera, this process is called tri-optique. This is done to remove grapes that, in terms of color or shape, do not meet the conditions of the winery by means of high pressure. In this way, only the perfect grapes are selected. Furthermore, Campernaud only uses stainless steel steel cuves, so no wood, so that the pure expression of the terroir speaks as much as possible.

In the winery, the following steps are followed:
- vibration plate for separating tank juice and grapes
- tri-optique for grape selection
- cold treatment to prevent oxidation and color change
- pressing
- cold stabilization of must for 7 days
- fermentation for 10 to 14 days
- the wine matures (sur lies)
- assembling different grapes (blending)
- final bottling in the bottle

Wine has been produced at Château Camparnaud since 1879. In 2000, the Dutch wine expert Marnix Engels joined the Château. In collaboration with the noble Chevron Villette family, Marnix Engels has managed to realize a world-class domain. The noble De Chevron Villette family dates from 1189 and has centuries of experience in wine growing. In 2012, a joint venture with Count Guillaume de Chevron Villette brought state-of-the-art winemaking techniques to Camparnaud. Today the company owns one of the most modern wineries in Provence. Owner Chevron Vilette is a winemaker at heart with a passion for its environment, terroir and viticulture.
