Lot Essay


The signage in the present painting links Maison Hélie with the Clos du Postillon, the retail outlet for the winery Vins du Postillon, founded by Gabriel Gerbaud in 1862 in Narbonne and specialised in Corbières wines.
Gerbaud’s successor, Antoine Combastet (1892-1982), moved the company to Ivry-sur-Seine, rue Paul Vaillant-Couturier, in a suburb of Paris. At the beginning of the First World War, the company became the first winery in France to switch from selling their wine in barrels to labelled bottles, contributing to an unprecedented growth in sales.
