Domaine Les Yeuses was built in the 13th century by the Templars at the site of an ancient Roman villa. The estate gets its name from an ancient forest of evergreen oak trees (‘yeuses’ in the local dialect). Today, sadly, they have nearly disappeared, but are being replaced by a path of olive trees. The vineyard of Domaine Les Yeuses comprises over 80 hectares (197 acres) of limestone-rich gentle slopes which enjoy a maritime breeze. This unique location suits a wide variety of grapes. The estate has been in the Dardé family for more than 30 years. Jean-Paul and Michel, brothers, share the vineyard and wine-making responsibilities.
Round and rich wine in the mouth with aromas of exotic fruit. Fine apricot and apple pie aromas with ripe peach on the palate and creamy lemon flavours and a pleasing citrus zing on the finish.
Absolutely fab with Pad Thai, pork with noodles, turkey and all the trimmings, Japanese noodles topped with Shichimi Togarashi or duck Bahn mi topped with pickled vegetables and a spicy ginger sauce with orange and sesame oil… get in!
