Located between the coast and the Mediterranean scrubland, this property of Templar origin (XIIIes.) owes its name to a forest of holm oaks (Yeuses) which has now practically disappeared, replaced by an alley of olive trees leading to the courtyard of the estate. In the Dardé family since 1977, it covers 80 ha. At its head, Jean-Paul and Michel Dardé, joined by their children Sylvain and Magali, offer a wide range of wines in PGI.
A very right bank blend (Cabernet Franc and Merlot), whose initially silent nose releases sweet notes of overripe red fruits and spices on aeration. These become more relaxed in the mouth with good intensity, supported by tannins without any hardness, which takes care of the roundness, suppleness and expression of the fruit, and which is infatuated with a note of tobacco and chocolate.
Add noodles with black bean sauce with any filling – pork or tofu are great! Sticky ribs or pasta dishes with tomato-based sauces, especially with pancetta/bacon or mushrooms
