Notre Dame is the French name of "Our Mother"/Virgin Mary". The name comes from a place here, where people trying to avoid the plaigue in the Middle Age could find rest.
Pallières is the name of a lieu-dit near the small river Trignon - the border between Sablet and Gigondas. 
The property (at least a part of it) has been i possession of the family Roux for several generations.
The two cousins Jean-Pierre and Claude Roux run the domain together until 2015 when Jean-Pierre wanted to retire. Since then the domain has been run by Claude and his two children Julien and Isabelle. This will probably not mean a change of the wines as Claude has made them for 40 years.
Of course Jean-Pierre and his two sons Boris and Fréderic has got their share of vineyards. Today Notre Dames des Pallières covers 32 ha;  7,5 ha. in Gigondas, 6,5 ha in Rasteau, 10 ha in Sablet, 7 ha in Lirac and 1 ha in Cotes du Rhone.
