In 2006 the domain was purchased by Jean-Michel Cazes Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac in Bordeaux.
The owner 1992-2006 Pascal Roux was also the owner of Chateau du Trignon in Gigondas.
When Pascal Roux bought the domain from the Raynaud family he bought only 27 of the 42 ha belonging to the property at that time. That's the reason why there is lots of space in the cellars.
Bernard Tranchecoste has since 1998 been responsible for the mangement of the domain and the winemaking.

The domain covers 24 ha planted with vines of which 3 ha are with white varirties The vines are situated at three lieux-dits Bois Sénéchaux, Les Revès and Grand Pierre. Special cuvèes have never been made at the domain.
