The domain was established in 1976 when Robert Moulin bought Domaine Tacussel from his father-in-law Henri Tacussel. He then added Moulin to the domain name.
1985 became his first vintage bottled at the domain. 
The vinification takes place in very nice buildings situated in the middle of the village and they are situated just where many tourists pass by and near a parking place. The aging of the wines takes place in a typical old celler at Avenue Général de Gaulle 13.
Robert Moulin is in his nineties and you will probably not meet him any more in the tasting room. He has three daughters who are not very interested the wine business he told me more than 10 years ago. One of them Fabienne Peyrou has since 2015 been gérant toghether with her father. 
The responsability for the vineyards and the winemaking have since 2003 been in the hands of Didier Latour.

White Chateauneuf du Pape is made from 0,6 ha. The vineyards for red Chateauneuf du Pape covers 7,9 ha. The vines have an average age of 40 years.
