This terroir is of great quality, good technical skills and above all, the knowledge of the land. These ingredients make for the success of Domainel la Suffrène. When the youth combines its dreams and modernity with the experience of seniors, the results are often excellent. La Suffrène, the domain of Cedric Gravier proves this truism once again. 


Bandol is at its best when it has been given time to age, since the Mourvèdre varietal shines through the quality of its aromas (pepper, truffle, black fruit...) but lack of suppleness in its youth. So we can only rejoice when we find out that the cellar of La Suffrène is a wide range of vintages dating back to 2002

Original and unusual

Cedric Gravier has installed a small mechanical oil mill in a large room adjacent to the cellar. Each winter he presses the fruits of the thousands of olive trees that the domain accounts for. The oil produced turns out a pleasant creaminess and a beautiful originality with the subtle blend of ten different varieties.
