Just because of the beautiful bottle you should have this rose on the table during every sunny occasion. But apart from that, the taste is really delicious and delicious with gazpacho with fresh oregano. This is the Premium L'Hydropathe version in which only the best grapes are used. Domaine des Diables considers this special wine as the pinnacle of Provence rosé. The wine has already won several awards.

Syrah (60%) and Grenache, picked overnight, are soaked separately with husks in steel vats for five hours. After the fruits have been pressed, the drained juice remains unfiltered for another week in closed tubs in which oxygen has no chance to cause damage. Compared to the other MIP rose's this one has had 4 months of education. It is precisely this slow aging that produces a very pure wine in which the characteristics of the various biologically treated vineyards can be tasted. Once in the assembly, the Lucie smells and tastes refined like ripe red fruits. It is its pleasant minerality and longer finish that distinguish it from its lighter brothers. That is why this more complex rosé combines a little more easily with spicy ingredients. For those who prefer a different color at the table, this Provence wine can always be served before dinner: a more beautiful aperitif than this wine is hard to imagine.

In Puyloubier, twenty kilometers east of Aix-en-Provence, at the foot of the Montagne Sainte Victoire, Michel Fabre founded Domaine Sainte Lucie in 1978. The average thirty-five-year-old vines of Sainte Lucie stand on a thin layer of calcareous sandy and red clay soil full of stones. Actually only a soil suitable for wine grapes. This mainly concerns the red varieties Grenache and Syrah, supplemented with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre and of course Carignan and Cinsault.

Because the grapes on the domain enjoy optimal planting in relation to the sun, they can reach full and ripe maturity in good health. In humid weather, the pleasant mountain winds - of which the Mistral is perhaps the best known - ensure that mold and rot do not get a grip on the trusses. It makes organic farming at Domaine Sainte Lucie an easy challenge.

Naturally, the nature-friendly approach on the domain also has repercussions on the wines of Domaine des Diables. They are fruity, elegantly spicy, floral and pure. Add to that the modern bottle versions and the rosés can be counted among the most tempting Provence wines for every occasion and every moment of use.
