The name of the domain doesn't relate to the owners today. It comes from an owner in the 18th century François Xavier de Lambert bishop of Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux.

A domain with own bottling was establised in 1969, when new cellars were built by André Gras and in 1970 the first bottled vintage with the name appeared.

In 2005 the responsability was handed over to the two sons Jean François and Christian Gras to be the 4th generation of the family at the property. Christian Gras has not been gérant since 2011 and since 2017 not either Jean François.

The property covers 26 ha., of which 14 ha. are Gigondas, 2 ha are Vacqueyras and the rest is Cotes du Rhone or IGP.
