The Domaine Pascal Granger is located in the hamlet of Les Poupets within the village of Juliénas in the heart of the finest sector of the Beaujolais district. This estate has been in the Granger family for over two hundred years, dating to Napoleonic times, and has passed from father to son continually. Today, the estate is run by Jean-Philippe Granger who has been revamping the vineyards to accommodate a more manual, natural approach, phasing out chemical herbicides and limiting pesticide use.

The domaine encompasses 14 hectares with vineyard holdings in the home village of Juliénas and extending through the neighboring villages of Jullié, Chénas, La Chapelle de Guinchay and Leynes. All harvesting is done manually and treatments in the vineyards are minimal with weed-growth tolerated between the vines. Their winery is an old Juliénas church.

Reviews

  • Pascal Granger 2014 'Cuvee Speciale' Julienas AOC
    Vinous
    Rating: 92 (8/10/2016)

    Vivid ruby. Ripe, deeply perfumed blue fruit and floral pastille scents show excellent clarity and pick up a hint of licorice with air. Sappy and expansive, offering lush boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors given lift and spine by juicy acidity. Fine-grained tannins come in late on the impressively long finish, adding grip the densely packed and appealingly sweet fruit. -- Josh Raynolds
