In the 1990ties this domain became a very well known producer of Cotes du Rhone. In 1998 the owner Phillipe Laurent doubled the area of his vineyards by purchasing 20 ha in Vinsobres. Very unfortunately he in 1999 died in a tragic accident and his wife decided to sell some of the fields. In 2000 15 ha was sold to the Perrin brothers at Chateau de Beaucastel.  
Since 2006 the son
Maxime-Francois Laurent works at the domain. Some vinyards in Valreas have been purshaced and the domain covers a total of 25 ha.
