Jacques Paumel whose ancestors have been winegrowers for several
generations took charge of the domain in 1962. He started bottling with his own mark in the 1980's.
The next generation brother and sister Richard
and Florence Paumel have been in charge for some years. In 2013 Florence's
son Paul Verite (born 1995) became responsible
for the compagny together with his uncle Richard Paumel.
The domain covers 2 ha of Chateauneuf du Pape at the lieux-dits La
Crau, Les Bédines og Saintes Vierges
and in Orange 5,5 ha of Cotes du Rhone Village and Cotes du Rhone.
Only red wines are made at the domain.
All the wines are aged for about two years in cement tanks and then in old barrels or foudres for about 6 months before
bottling. Normally the wines are for sale 5
years after harvest.
