The domain has 15 ha. in AOC Chateauneuf du Pape (only red wines are produced). The average age is 60 years,, but 1/3 of the vines are more than 100-year-old Grenache. This is the case for the 1,6 ha vineyard at Grand Pierre. This parcel is free of pebbles and with sandy red soils located at the slopes. Another good parcel is 0,8 ha. also with 100-years-old Grenache at Terres Blanches. Also at Palestor is 2,3 ha. with 100-years-old Grenache. Julien is also very fond of his 0,5 ha. parcel at  Pierre A Feu with 60-years-old Cinsault.
In 2013 the construction of a new celler started. It was ready for the harvest 2015.
Before the harvest all vines from vintage 2014 were moved to the new ageing celler together with barrels, foudres and tanks from the old cellar.
The new cellar is situated at Chemin du Clos. 
From a couple of ha in Chateauneuf-du-Gadagne belonging to a friend Yannick Alliuad, Julien has made a special Liberty de La Barroche since 2015. 
This cuvée is made in the old cellars on Avenue des Bosquets.
Since 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc from Clairette fra lieu-dit Pialons is made.
