AOP Bandol

Domaine La Suffrène 2019

€590 Flacon de 10cl

The vintage 2019 of this very nice rosé wine has a beautiful strawberry pink colour. With aromas of raspberry and lemon and orange blossom, it is reminiscent of Calissons d’Aix, the Provençal sweets made from ground almonds and candied fruits. On the palate, this is a supple and rich wine with good body and plenty of fruit. The liveliness in the finish brings great balance to this Bandol which it is impossible not to love.

Winemaker

Cédric Gravier

Cedric Gravier never had any doubts about his vocation for wine. His career path appeared to him after graduating from high school and traveling to the United States. Upon his return from the United States, Cédric Gravier began learning about winegrowing in Aix, and was helped a lot by his grandparents who had some vineyards in the vicinity of their village. It was in 1996 that he decided to take over the vineyard on his own and only at the age of 23.
