The domain owns a total of 37 ha. situated in Travaillan, Cairanne and Sérignan. 
Daniel Boulle is the 4th generation at the domain and took over in in 1987. Until 1999 all the production was sold to a cooperative. Now the whole production is vinified at the domain but 1/3 is still sold in bulk.
New cellars were built in 2000. From 2007 the domain is certified as biodynamic (Biodivin) and organic (ECOCERT).
Dainel Boulle is a friend and a client of the oenolog Phillippe Cambie.

Robert Parker: ("maybe the richest Cotes du Rhone I have tasted") .

A range of cuvées are made. The best cuvées are aged in barriques or demi-muids for 6-12 months. 
Most of the cuvées are made from vineyards situated at Plan de Dieu, 
but this name is not mentioned on any of the labels.
