AOP Bandol

Domaine La Suffrène 2018

€660 Bottle of 10cl

Ce vin rouge de Provence ne manquera pas de vous séduire avec sa robe très sombre et ses reflets rouge orangé. Au nez, ce Bandol ce révèle complexe. Il dévoile diverses arômes comme le cèdre mentholé, typique du mourvèdre. Mais ce vin fait aussi la part belle au fruité, avec des notes de fruits noirs principalement, cassis et mûre. En bouche c'est un vin complet, étoffé et opulent, qui présente tout de même une belle fraicheur et rappelle la garrigue.

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.
