There still exist a small basement with very thick walls and a spiral staircase which is centuries old. In 1987 Patrick Jaume took over the property from his father. In 1995 he built a new underground vinefication cellar and a storage to keep finished wines. The old cellars have since been used to store wines. The ageing is done mainly in foudres. The daughter Elodie Jaume is after completion her wine education returned to the domain to assist the father.
