The former owner Vincent Moreau established the domain around 2003. and built the very spectacular but beautiful buildings along the road between Cairanne and Rasteau - many good domains but not known for architectural eye-catchers. Although the relatively large buildings from that time signaled that the buildings had to contain a wine cellar but this was not the case. The wines were vinified and stored in a cellar that had belonged to the legendary Domaine Rocher.
It was not surprising that the new owner from 2016 Jean-François Trontin decided to build new cellars. After only three years - September 2019 he sold the domain to the Union des Vignerons des Cotes du Rhone (Les Dauphins)
The domain covers 49 ha. The biggest part in Cairanne but also some ha in Rasteau

From the tasting room you hace a nice vieuw  to Dentelles de Montmirail. Walking out in the parc you see the domain's tasting room - the two big doors

In July 2019 the new cellar - seen from the road - was finished.

Seen from another angel the nice buildings raised by the former owner are still visible. Maybe a dissonans between the different architectures
