2020 Classic Rosé Made in Provence
|Grapes||Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault|
|Sub-district||Côtes de Provence|
MiP stands for Made in Provence, a brilliant range of wines produced by Guillaume and Virginie Philip. I love the Classic for its silkiness. A great house Provence rosé. The (more expensive) Premium is fantastic too. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (May 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Incredibly pale, with herbal white peach, red cherry and wild strawberry fruit, good texture - more substance than many, it's softly refreshing as well as having the definition of bright acidity. This is summer in a glass, but just as welcome on a frosty clear day or to brighten a miserable grey one.L&S (Jan 2021)
Peachy and fragrant. I’ve ordered multiple cases of this to rock the summer. Sensational.Olly Smith, The Mail on Sunday (Jun 2021)
Smells like strawberry and raspberry ice cream. Fruity, cheerful number, energetically and deftly whirling pompoms of satsuma and maraschino cherry and jellied strawberries. Dry, but not bone dry; the sweetness is well balanced to make this an appealing anytime rosé that will prove particularly flexible at the table. Has a little tingle through its spine that accentuates the freshness and carries it a little longer to the finish. Deserves its fan club.

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.
As the sun starts to peek through the clouds and we can look forward to leaving winter behind us, we can say goodbye to the hearty, warming tipples that got us through those long months. What better way of bringing in Spring then with this refreshing mix of wine, from the delicious and lip-smacking Anjou Blanc and Soave, to a set of reds that are delicious on their own or a perfect pair to Spring Lamb. And, of course, no case would be complete without some MiP Rosé - a wine that simply screams sunshine and fun.
