In the 17th century Alexandre Barrot purchased the first plot of land and founded a domain. After him followed Pierre Barrot and later Eugène Gabriel Barrot. After him the domain was divided between four sons, one of them was Marcel Barrot. Marcel's son Christian Barrot resumed winemaking at the estate, originally calling it "Lou Destré d'Antan" "the press of Yesteryear" in memory of his grandfather. Christian Barrot sold most of the production in bulk but bottled a small part only meant for friends and family. The last vintage with this label was 2000. In 2002 Christian's son Julien and daughter Laetitia joined their father after completing studies in winemaking and business.
The domain is 15 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape and only red wines are produced. The average age is 60 years old, but 1/3 of the vines are more than 100-year-old Grenache.
The 2015 Pure is 97% Grenache and 3% other varieties from lieu-dit Grand Pierre planted in 1901 and from Rayas and Pointu. Aged in foudres for 18 months.
