When ploughing the fields around Saint Gayan roman vestiges are often revealed proving human presence at the place for at least two milleniums.
The family of today know about ancesters back to 14. century. In 1709 the estate was purchased by a direct forefather. Thus there is of course a feeling of affinity present at the domain. Today it's the 10th generation running the domain.
The next generation the son-in-law Christian-Yves Carré de Lusançay has worked at the domain since 2007 when he married Julie.

The domain covers 16 ha of Gigondas, 0,75 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape (Lieu-dit Janasse), 1,4 ha of Cotes du Rhone Village Sablet, 5 ha of Rasteau and 10 ha of Cotes du Rhone and 1,5 ha of IGP.
