Until 1998 when Diane de Puymorin bought the domain it was called Domaine de la Petite Cassagne. At the American market you can still see some of the wines with that name.
Diane's second name and heraldic sign at the labels indicate that she might be a descendant form a noble family and so she is. The label for Cuvée la Noblesa shows the weapon of the family. Translated into wine words the golden stribes "d'Or" symbolize power and richness generated by the sun when the red stribes and the proçencal word Gueules means something like an open mouth ready to taste.
Diane has a r
elaxed attitude to the noblessity. She tells that the first man in the family who had to work was her father. It was not a family fortune that made her able to buy the domain, it was people in a banc who trusted her.

The domain is covering 50 ha. of vineyards since 2014 certified agriculture biologique.
