Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Rather light patridge eye colour. Frank nose open on cranberries, notes of morello cherries then spicy aniseed. Good balance on a rather full-bodied and round wine, finesse, small frank character of cranberries, fresh mentholated notes. Good finish, rather sapid, frank, tense.

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.

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, 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.
