Bandol – traditional techniques – superstar in the making
Domaine la Suffrène
Although he has only been bottling his wines for a few years, Cédric Gravier is already a superstar in the making. La Suffrène’s vineyard practices are traditional from gobelet-trained vines to the strict vendange vert which keeps yields low, optimising quality and contributing towards concentration in the grapes when harvested.
The 2011 Bandol Rouge is a mastodon, weighing in at a burly 15 degrees of alcohol and is hugely concentrated and wildly aromatic with spices, pepper, sandalwood, coffee and leather.
