Domain and appellation
Owned by Maison Castel since 2000, Château Cavalier is located between Aix-en-Provence and Nice in the Var, and produces high quality rosé wines.
Terroir: Spread over 132 hectares, the vines grow on shallow, sandy-silt soils made up of sandstone and clay which favour drainage. Each hectare has 5,500 vines.
Viticulture: Harvesting takes place at night, in the coolest hours, to preserve the berries from oxidation.
Vinification: The Syrah, Rolle, Semillon and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are left to rest in still thermo-regulated vats for 15 to 18 days. The Grenache undergoes skin maceration for 4 to 8 hours. Fermentation then takes place for 4 to 8 hours, depending on the grape variety, at a controlled temperature. The wine is aged on the lees for two months, then on the fine lees for one to two months.
