In 2017 the negociant Philippe Guigal from Ampuis purchased the property.
He has serious plans for investments in restauration of the vineyards and rebuildings of the cellars at the place.
The four cuvées of 2017 promise a raise of quality of the wines. Especially the two top cuvées named Chateau de Nalys.

The domain covers approximately 60 ha situated at three lieux-dits Bois de Sénéchaux, Grand Pierre and La Crau.
An unusual high share of the production (15-20%) is white Chateauneuf du Pape.
In 2020, Guigal bought another domain in Chateauneuf du Pape, Domaine des Clefs d'Or. This gave him the opportunity to dispose of another 20 ha of relatively older vineyards on Pied Long and La Crau. The wine from these vineyards will be included in the wines from Chateau de Nalys. 
With the purchase of this domain, he also
got 12 ha of Massif d'Uchaux. Unsure is wines with that name will be made.
