2017 MiP COLLECTION Premium Rosé

Grapes Grenache, Syrah, Vermentino
Colour Rosé
Origin France, Provence
ABV 12.5%

The slightly more grown up version of the iconic MiP* Rosé. Still prettily pale and delicately pink, and dancingly light. There is more Syrah in the 'Collection' which lends just a touch more depth to the peach/redcurrant fruit, and there is also 10% Rolle (Vermentino) in the cuvee to brighten the refreshing finish. For followers of Guillaume's rosés, the MiP* Collection is, essentially, a replacement in the range for the Made in Provence! Rosé. L&S (Apr 2018)

Ten percent of the white variety Rolle is included in the 2017 Cotes de Provence Rose MiP Collection and no doubt accounts for its zesty freshness (the bulk of the blend is Syrah and Grenache). Passion fruit and strawberry notes finish crisp, mouthwatering and harmonious in this light to medium-bodied beauty. Rating: 91-91 Joe Czerwinski, www.robertparker.com(Jun 2018)

Striking, memorable, and environmentally unfriendly. Super-pale pink. Turkish delight and rose petals. Quite earthy, in a way. Crushed shells and white peaches. Definite minerality and grip on the finish of this. Demanding. Must be served with food. Peppery seared tuna steak? Chewy finish. Chalky. Edge of iced tarragon. Worth paying more for this serious rosé. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 Rating: 17 Tamlyn Currin - www.JancisRobinson.com(May 2018)

Pale fuschia pink. Powerfully aromatic nose with predominant notes of citrus fruit and red berries. Very delicate mouthfeel with the same aromatic notes as the nose and a long finish for lasting pleasure. Ideal with light meals, salads, BBQs and with Provençal-style cuisine in general.Winemaker's notes(Feb 2018)

Domaine des Diables

Domaine des Diables – ‘the devils’- is owned and run by Guillaume and Virginie Philip, and is the home of the MiP* (*Made in Provence) labels as well as Les Petits Diables and Rosé BonBon. Virginie and Guillaume met at Montpellier wine school, and their first production, based on grapes from Virginie's father's vineyard at the foot of The Mont Saint Victoire, was in 2006, from the 2005 vintage. L&S has been their sole UK importer since the 2007 vintage.

Domaine des Diables has won nine consecutive Prix d'Excellence awards at the Concours Général Agricole. This special award is given in recognition of the best ratio of medals to samples presented to the competition and this astonishing record means that their son Paul, born in 2010, has shaken hands with three ministers of agriculture. The MiP* wines are regular winners of awards in all the competitions they have entered in the last ten years.

The vineyards are cultivated in a sustainable, eco-friendly way, bordering on organic farming, with careful monitoring for disease problems so that interventions are kept to the minimum. In the cellar it is all about cleanliness and use of technology to keep the wines as pure and aromatic as possible, so it is fully equipped with pressing under inert gas, tangential filter, and temperature control.

The grapes are harvested at night or in the early morning so as to save energy needed to cool them, and protected from oxidation with dry ice, reducing the need for added sulphites. The grapes are either directly pressed or given a short maceration on the skins, but Guillaume has his own little tricks which he keeps secret, which make for the particularly aromatic expression of the Domaine's wines. Bottling is also highly technical, with the bottles corked under a vacuum.

All the wines are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
