Domaine des Relagnes existed until 2006 owned by Henri Boiron. The domain covered 16 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape and
3 different cuvées of red Chateauneuf du Pape were made, the basic cuvée,
Cuvée Vigneronne and Cuvée Les Petits Pieds d'Armand.
Henri Boiron's son-in-law Olivier Hillaire worked at the domain and with
assistance of the oenolog Phillippe Gambie the wines got a high
In 2006 Henri Boiron decided to retire and wanted to sell the property.
80% of the fields were sold to the owner of Chateau Calissanne, producer
of Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence in Lancon de Provence. This domain also
owns the buildings situated at Route de Bedarrides.
The rest of the vineyards of Domaine Relagnes was purchased by Olivier Hillaire who now
owns 3 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape (Without any daubt he knew which 3 ha
were the very best) and 5 ha of Cotes du Rhone.
As Hillaire doesn't have his own
cellars yet, his wines are aged in a big building in Sorgues
former used to store apples. Several producers use
this place, among them Henri Bonneau and André Brunel.
