Château Camplazens cultivates its vines on a particular terroir: the valleys and slopes on which the vines are located are surrounded by limestone cliffs, pine forests and wild moors. A real ecosystem is created where thyme, rosemary, lavender, juniper and other wild flowers grow. This set is at the origin of the richly perfumed aromas that are found in the wines. 48 hectares of vines are grown on the estate. They are pruned for low yields, from 30 to 40 hectolitres per hectare. The time spent on the vine is maximized to reach full physiological maturity of the grapes and the cellar has a capacity of 200 barrels. All the barrels are bought new and renewed every three wines. The blend of French and American oak from several cooperages is carefully chosen to create effects that match the characteristics and shape of our wines.
The mission of the Close family is to develop the potential of Camplazens to best express the flavours and aromas of this very special microclimate, located on the site of a Roman colony on the top of a limestone massif known as the Clape. The environment has been protected since 1965, the only activity allowed is the cultivation of vines and the vinification of grapes, and the climatic conditions are ideal with more than 3000 hours of sunshine per year, at the highest point in any part of the northern Mediterranean!
The parcels of old Carignan, planted in 1953, are pruned in Gobelet to be able to pick by hand.
