In 1992, the oenologically trained Louis Barruol took over the property from his father Henri Barroul. Since 1570 the property has been inherited by Louis Barroul's ancestors and Barroul is the 14th generation at the property.

The 15 ha. AOC Gigondas, belonging to the property, is located around the domain and encircles the medieval Chapel Saint Cosme giving name to the place.
Although the parcels are gathered in a small area, there are quite different soil
conditions, as the vineyards are located somewhere where the rejections from Dentelles de Montmirail cross each other.

In 2013 Barroul acquired a domain of 10 ha. in Violès. From 2016, white wine was produced from newly planted Viognier and Picpoul and in 2017 a white wine based on Marsanne.
In 2019 Louis Barroul bought Chateau Rouanne in Vinsobres.
Since 2013 the Gigondas vineyards have been certified agriculture biologique.

It was a very old wine Louis Barroul found - 2019
