Domaine des Diables
MiP "Made in Provence"
With 20 acres of vineyards, this estate lies at the foot of Mont Saint Victoire in the municipality of Puyloubier, near Aix-en-Provence was created by Michael Fabre in 1979. The estate is now managed by his daughter Virginie, her partner Guillaume and his son Aurelien. In recent years, a lot of resources have been invested in the domain, its wine cellars, vineyards and marketing. Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Rolle (Vermentino) are planted on the stony soil. Due to the warm and dry climate, few diseases occur in the vineyards, so that natural-friendly integrated agriculture can be applied. Sulfites are no longer added due to an oxygen-free production.
The color of this well-crafted rosé is pretty light salmon. It has a powerful bouquet of white flowers and red fruit with a hint of orange citrus. This rose´ has a medium body with delicate acidity on the palate. The freshness gives it an elegant and long finish. This is a perfect summer drink before dinner or accompanied with light Mediterranean dishes.
