AOP Bandol

Domaine La Suffrène 2017

€450 Bottle of 10cl

A rose petal color with a glimmer of gold give this new 2017 vintage an elegant look. The nose is beautifully aromatic with notes of peach and wild strawberry, combined with the sweet spices of nutmeg and cinnamon. On the palate, you find this same aromatic intensity and a delightful richness. With both a fruity and spicy side, this Bandol rosé is just the trick with Mediterranean cuisine.

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.
