97 Points and Best Rosé on Show Trophy: Decanter World Wine Awards 2019
This is your chance to grab the rose rated #1 at the Decanter World Wine Awards this year. By a country mile, this is the biggest competition in the world for rose and if you want to see what all the fuss is about, then you'd better be quick to secure your order. This is what Decanter had to say about Domaine La Suffrene Rose 2018 upon winning the award.
'The art of Rosé is the art of understatement, the art of creating a drinkability so complete that it almost contrives to efface its own origins. Almost. Yet it's a mark of the greatness of this rosé that those origins do linger - namely the distinguished clay-marl terraces of Bandol, and the contentment of the Mourvedre which so relishes growing there. This is a deeper salmon than many of its peers, with scintillatingly peachy-floral fruits. The origins come through most clearly in the palate, with its sustained shaping structure from those contented Mourvedre vines. The Grenache, meanwhile, has brought wealth and fleshy Cinsault charm. It adds up to an irresistible whole.'' 97 Points and Best Rosé on Show Trophy, Decanter World Wine Awards 2019
''A gorgeous, hazily evocative postcard from the warm south. Domaine la Suffrene’s 2018 provides extra levels of soft, welcoming red fruit and the subtlest herby finish.'' David Williams, The Guardian
“Very pure, with a brisk sea salt note imparting lovely cut, while the flavours of dried strawberry, watermelon seed and peach play out through the lengthy finish. A precise rosé.” Wine Spectator Magazine
