Le Petit Diable (the little devil) – in reference to the youngest member of the family Paul – offers excellent value for money, much to the competition’s irritation. Grown on parcels planted since the creation of the estates in 2007, this wine gets better and better with each vintage. In a few years time this little devil will certainly rival its elders.
