Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah. Smells very much like strawberry bonbons and peach hand lotion. A suggestion of seaweed salt and lemon quarters dipped in sweet paprika and lavender. Tastes much more interesting than it smells. Right at the end, the taste you get when you lick mussel shells. Slimline and quicksilver, would almost be racy but for the substantial weight of peachy fruit on the palate and the creamy peach-kernel bitter notes that fleck through the peach.

The Rosé Bonbon is the big brother of the Petit Diables and as you would expect is a more grown up style. Plenty of ripe red fruitiness on the nose, a tang of grapefruit and pear and underbrush. In the mouth you feel the bright juiciness of the fruit, red once more, cherries and redcurrant then some floral notes and a lovely pull of tannin drawing out the length in the mouth.L&S (Mar 2021)

Ultra-pale and ‘white-wine-shaped’, this is a terrifically refreshing and clean style with a super-classy feel about it. Stick to aperitif duties or lighter dishes like sushi and sashimi because this is a rapier-sharp wine as opposed to a foodier number. I love the design, too! Rating: 17.5 Matthew Jukes (Apr 2021)

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.
