des Bosquets is owned by the Brechet family, who also owns
Records from 1376 mention Vinea
culta on a lieu-dit in
Gigondas called Bosquets. The
oldest documented building at the domain's
current location dates back to 1644
when a feudal lord Jean de Rivière,
Seigneur de Laval, built a
bâtisse on site. A renovated
tower from this period is situated by
the domain. In the latter half of the
1800s the property was for a period owned
by Eugène Raspail, who built
Chateau Raspail in Gigondas.
Domaine des Bosquets was bought in 1962 by the legendary Gabriel Meffre. It's his
grandchildren, the brothers Laurent and Julien Brechet, who run the two
domains today. Laurent is in charge of Vaudieu and since 2006 Julien makes
the daily decisions
at Domaine des Bosquets. The estate covers 26 ha of Gigondas.
In recent years
some investments have been made in
a modern vinification cellar and an
ageing cellar and a very nice
tasting room has been established.
