In 1992 Gaël Petit took over the domain after his mother Mireille Petit Roudil, his maternal grand father Gabriel was from the very (in Tavel) historic Roudil family.
The most
significant of this family who have lived in the area since the 16th century was probably Aimé Roudil (1870-1938). He became one of those who helped restore the vineyards after the Phylloxera crisis and he was one of the leading people who helped to make the rules and delimitation of the appellation in collaboration with Pierre le Roy of Chateauneuf du Pape. They were the driving force behind the first two appellations in France in 1936.

Aime Roudil (1870-1936) Pierr Le Roy 1890-1937

The domain covers 15 ha of Tavel and 0,83 ha of Lirac.
The grapes of the domain are harvested with a slightly higher maturity than on most other domains in Tavel.  
Petit's attitude is that Rosé is a light red wine
, as he says they were ment historically.
