Winemaker Notes

This fresh, lively wine is a gleaming rose-pink. Delicately perfumed, with subtle tropical fruit aromas. Flavors of grapefruit and lychee on the rounded palate. Perfect for elegant mealtimes or casual get-togethers. Serve chilled.

Blend: 62% Grenache, 16% Syrah, 12% Cinsault

Tasting Panel
The salmon pink hue with blue highlights gives this engaging rose an enticing start. Ripe dusty, cantaloupe is aromatic from nose to taste buds. Sweet pink grapefruit and linen meets a stony middle. Peach pit and rose petals finish the taut, floral finsih.

Chateau Cavalier, Cotes de Provence, Provence, France
Image of winery
Chateau Cavalier became part of the Castel portfolio in 2000. The intervening years have seen a period of major development: the vineyard has been re-planted while substantial investments have been made in the winery. As a result, Chateau Cavalier is now one of the major players in the field of the Great Wines of Provence.

Florent Gaillard embraces and specializes in Rose wines of Provence. He joined the estate team in June 2011, bringing with him 18 years of experience in the region, including that of overall Manager of Operations at the prestigious Domaine Ott.

Cotes de Provence

View all wine

Cotes de Provence is an extensive but valuable appellation that includes vineyards bordering the main Provence appellations and extending all the way east to the border of Italy. Its sites vary from subalpine hills, which receive the cooling effects of the mountains to the north, to the coastal St-Tropez, a warm Mediterranean wine-producing region.

Here there is a new focus on quality rosé, as it defines four fifths of the region’s wines. Following in the rosé footsteps, a lot of new effort is going into the region’s red production. A new generation has turned its focus on high quality Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. Cotes de Provence white wines, which represent a miniscule part of the region as far as volume, are nonetheless worthy of consideration and can include any combination of Clairette, Semillon, Ugni Blanc and Vermentino.

Rosé Wine

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
