Jacques Callet acquired the estate in 1996 and has since then renovated the buildings and has built a modern cellar equipped with-up-to date technical machinery for winemaking. 
Thus he has created a platform for making better wines than the property has been known for until Callet came in charge.

The estate has quite many hectares with vines: 30 ha. of Chateauneuf du Pape, 20 ha. of Cotes du Rhone Village and 22 ha. of Cotes du Rhone.
The vineyards are certified agriculture biologique since 2010.
