Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

With its coral salmon color, this wine offers an open nose, spicy then notes of exotic fruits. In the mouth, it presents a round and greedy attack, on the exotic fruits and the sweet spices. Tasty and full-bodied finish. Very beautiful rosé for your summer meals !

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 ?

Château Cavalier stands at the heart of the Massif des Maures, and is named for the stream flowing through the property.

    Property of the Maison Castel since 2000, the Château Cavalier is located between the cities of Aix-en-Provence and Nice, in the Var region and produces high-quality rosé wines.
     
     

    • Terroir: Spread over 132 hectares, the vines evolve on sandy and limestone soils, made of sandstone and clay soils, helping the drainage. Each hectare has 5 500 plants.


     

    • Viticulture: The harvest are done overnight, at the freshest hours, in order to avoid oxidation.


     

    • Wine-making: The grape varieties Syrah, Rolle and Cabernet Sauvignon rest in motionless thermo-regulated tanks during 15 to 18 days. The Grenache, the most precocious grape variety of the domain, is subjected to a skin maceration during 6 hours. The fermentation is made at 17 or 18°C. 70% of the vintage is vinified with carefully and specially selected yeasts. The wine ages on complete dregs for 2 months, and then on thin dregs for one to two months.
