This cuvée takes its name from the woods surrounding the vines on this terraced plot. It is very refined while retaining the characteristic power of wines from this region. The Grenache, Carignan and Mourvèdre grapes in this cuvée are cultivated on the siliceous soils of the garrigue and yields are restricted to 30 hectolitres per hectare. They are steeped in vats for two weeks and the wine is matured in barriques.
Pale, almost colorless in the glass, this wine smells of golden apples and wet stones. In the mouth the wine has a moderate sweetness, with flavors of lemon and apple, and a hint of something woody, like a wet deck in the rain. A finish of grapes.
50% Pinot Gris, 45% Welsh Riesling, 5% Muscat Ottonel
Intense aromas of roses, rose oil and water, refreshing citrus aromas, strawberries and cherry character, light muscat, very subtle tannins give the wine character.
Attractive bouquet of grapefruit zest, over white blossom and fine herb spice. The palate displays juicy characters of fresh tropical fruit supported by elegant balance and a lingering aftertaste of ripe yellow peach.
