Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Pale salmon colour with purple hues. Open nose with red berries, fennel, bay leaf and rosemary. Beautiful balance on a frank, straightforward wine, with finesse, fairly full-bodied. Character which prolongs the aromas of the nose on the freshness, the minerality, beautiful frank and tense length, sapid.

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
In the heart of the Massif des Maures, Château Cavalier takes its name from the stream that runs through the property.
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 is done 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.
