Domaine Les Fines Graves (Janodet)


The late Jacky Janodet was known as an artisan
producer of first class Cru Beaujolais. In the
venerable region of Moulin-A-Vent, Janodet’s 17.2
acres of vineyards, the Domaine Les Fines Graves,
with their high percentage of very old vines, yield
wines which are incredibly rich and powerful for
Beaujolais, often improving with several years in
bottle. Today the domaine is ably run by Jacky’s
wife Evelyn and their son, Jerome. The Domaine
Les Fines Graves continues to produce excellent
wines from the Beaujolais-Villages, Chénas and St.
Amour appellations. However, it is the Moulin-à-
Vent, the queen of Beaujolais, that reigns at this
estate. Deep, brooding and quite Burgundian in
nature, this is one of the most masculine and ageworthy
of all Beaujolais wines. Jérôme also has his
own enterprise and makes a sumptuous Saint
Amour from his Domaine des Vieilles Caves. A
mere 250 cases a year are made from this plot of 75
to 100 year-old vines formerly owned by Jérôme’s
