Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Partridge-eye colour with salmon glints. Nose of cranberries, a floral hint of wisteria and then citrus zest. Good balance on a wine with freshness. Small finesse, frank wine, taut on a sapid finish.

Features

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 Massif des Maures, the Château Cavalier takes its name from the stream that runs through the property.

Domain and appellation

  • Château Cavalier

    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 and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are left to rest in still thermo-regulated vats for 15 to 18 days. The Grenache, the earliest grape variety on the estate, undergoes a 6-hour skin contact maceration. Fermentation then takes place at 17 or 18°C. 70% of the wine is vinified with specially selected yeasts. The wine is aged on the lees for two months, then on the fine lees for one to two months.
