AOP Bandol

Domaine La Suffrène 2017

€590 Bottle of 10cl

This Bandol from Domaine de la Suffrène is a fleshy red wine with beautiful texture. It has a dark colour with a cherry red rim, and reveals cedar and heather honey on the nose as well as a slight touch of mintiness. On the palate, this wine is mouth-filling and well-rounded in texture with flavours of blackcurrant and pepper.

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.
