Domaine des Diables MiP
Michel Fabre founded Domaine Sainte Lucie in 1978 in Puyloubier, twenty kilometers east of Aix-en-Provence, at the foot of the Montagne Sainte Victoire. The average thirty-five-year-old sticks of Sainte Lucie are placed on a thin layer of calcareous sandy and red clay soil full of stones. Basically 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, vermentino 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 gentle mountain winds - of which the Mistral is perhaps the best known - ensure that fungi and rot do not get a grip on the bunches. It makes organic farming at Domaine Sainte Lucie an easy challenge.
The nature-friendly approach on the domain naturally also has an impact on the wines of Sainte Lucie. They are fruit-rich, elegantly spicy, floral and pure. Add to this the modern bottle versions and the rosés of Domaine Sainte Lucie can be counted among the most seductive Provence wines on every occasion and every moment of use.
