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 age-worthy of all Beaujolais wines.
