Domaine Saint Paul was established in 1934. In 1958 it was bought by Charles Establet. His daughter Christiane married Pierre Elie Jeune in the 1960's and by this marriage two old and well known families of Chateauneuf du Pape, Jeune and Establet, who can trace their ancestors back to the 14th century, was united. Pierre Elie Jeune was the inheritant of another property and founded in 1972 Domaine du Grand Tinel. The two domains have until around 2000 been relatively unknown as they were selling most of the production to negociants, but some investments in the cellars have been made. The first bottling at the domaine Saint Paul was vintage 1998
Two children (out of three) of the Jeune family,
Christophe and Isabelle, are since 2004 officially announced as responsable (the management) for Domaine Saint Paul, and during that year further investments were made in the vinification and ageing cellars.
