According to sources in the appellation the new AOP could have been
2005 together with Plan de Dieu, Massif d'Uchaux and other new
appellations, but local people want the name to be Cotes du Rhone Village Chateauneuf-du-Gadagne,
but the neighbours to the north opposed that the name chateauneuf became a
part of the name. After 7 years of discussions INAO decided that the name
should be Gadagne or continue to be just Cotes

The potential number of hectares in the
appellation is (according to information from the cooperartive) 250 ha, of
which 180 ha are situated in Chateauneuf du Gadagne.
