The genesis of the La Suffrene Estate stems from several generations, who have known how to cultivate and transmit a treasure modelled by nature during thousands of years. The estate covers 50 ha of AOC Bandol with nearly 1,000 olive trees.
Two generations working in the same direction, helping each other, in order to put into perspective the inexhaustible qualities of this small geological gem.
The estate covers over 50 hectares of AOC Bandol, which includes parcels which vary as to their geological characteristics. Most of the production is located between two rudists mountain ranges (calcareous fossils) of the Castellet: the Cadiere and the hillside of Sainte Anne de Castellet.
It is here that the star grape variety of Bandol, the Mourvèdre, manifests its richness. It brings structure and finesse to rosé, and an aromatic palette of spices and licorice to reds.
To balance this richness, it is accompanied by traditional varieties from Provence: Cinsault, Grenache and Carignan.
The vineyard is essentially made-up of old vines, but a rigorous operation of grubbing up and renewal is assured by regular replanting of young plants, encouraging a balance between vigour and fertility.
