  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • THE BRIEF
  • Domaine la Suffrene in Bandol has been the Gravier family homestead and vineyard for generations, but the grapes had always been sold to local cooperatives. It wasn't until 1996, when Cedric Gravier took to the helm, that the vineyards' potential was realized and bottled at the estate.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Home to 70-year-old Carignan and 50-year-old Mourvedre vines, the vineyards here are farmed organically but not certified. After sorting, destemming and crushing the fruit for his rosé, Cedric presses and lets the juice sit in tank for 48 hours to ‘decant’ until the sediment settles and the juice has reached 8-10 degrees celsius, before pumping the clear juice to another tank for a 10-12 day fermentation.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    A gorgeous salmon-pink in colour with orange tints. On the nose, fine and elegant aromas of red fruits with spicy notes. On the palate, complex and balanced, notes of spices and citrus. The finish is held by a delicate bitterness.
