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 Signature Chateauneuf du Pape is 62% Grenache, 18% Mourvedre, 13% Syrah, 5% Cinsault and 2% other varieties. The average age of the vines are 70 years. Vinification in cement tank.

Cinsault is matured in steel tank. The ageing lasts for 18 months.
