domain was established in 2014, when
Marie and Benoit Lombrière took over 5.5 ha. of the family
vineyards in Chateauneuf du Pape, located on Bois de la Ville and
Les Serres. The vineyards
belonged to Marie's
father Marcel Georges at Domaine du Chateau de l'Hers, owned by
him since 1980. He
sold the rest of his vineyards
to Christian Latouche at Chateau la Genestière in Tavel.
Benoit Lombrière presents himself as follows
"My family comes from Périgord,
where we have been peasants for centuries. I grew up on the
farm until I was about seven years old. This is probably
where my taste for the soil comes from, for healthy products, for the
respect of natural cycles. However, I have an atypical
career for a winemaker. After my baccalaureate, I studied
at Sciences-Po in Bordeaux, before taking a degree in commerce at ESSEC
in the Paris region. I started my career in the
institutions, I was in the cabinet of several ministers, then in the
Presidency of the Republic."
It might be because of his history his wines are in the cellar of
