Two old and well known families of Chateauneuf du
Pape, Jeune and Establet, who can trace their ancestors back to the 14th century, united their properties by a marriage between Christiane Establet
and Pierre Elie Jeune in 1960's, and the Domaine du Grand Tinel was born in
1972. In 1974 a winery was built at Route de Bedarrides in the outskirts of
Chateauneuf du Pape.
Vinification of wine from 74 hectares (56 ha in Chateauneuf and 18 in Cotes du
Rhone) could not be done in these buildings in the wanted way and therefore the
buildings have been renovated and extended in 2004-2006. Today they have
sufficient space for all the things needed in a modern winery and should have no
difficulties in treating the yield fra all the 74 hectares, which makes the
domain one of the biggest of the appellation.
The family also owns another property in Chateauneuf du Pape, Domaine Saint
This domain has 14 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape and is situated at Route
Sorgues. The wines from here are not made at Grand Tinel but at Saint Paul.
