Benjamin Passot is Burgundian by birth, with his professional experience acquired over several years on the Vosne Romanée terroirs. He created his Beaujolais domaine in 2017 in Juliénas, and today the estate owns more than 3.5 hectares of vines, growing to include the crus Moulin à vent, Morgon, Chiroubles, and Chénas.

The grapes are sustainably managed, hand harvested, and the wines are native fermented and aged in barrels.

We’re excited to launch in Ontario with two of Benjamin’s wines listed at the LCBO. Read more below, along with links to purchase.



Domaine Benjamin Passot Chénas En Pérenne 2021

From 50 year old vines from the lieu dit En Pérelle, at 210m, facing south on deep clay soils and galets. This was destemmed and native fermented in barrel. Pouring a light pale ruby hue, this has intoxicating perfumed wild strawberries, dried rose petal and crushed rocks, leading to a light, textural red based on wild strawberries, with fine and silken tannins. Lovely, long, and persistent. 1200 bottles.

Domaine Benjamin Passot Juliénas Vaux Vielles Vignes 2021

From 80 year old vines from the lieu dit Vaux, at 290m, rooted in blue granites and Limoneux clay. This was destemmed and native fermented in barrel. Pours a pale ruby hue, with ripe raspberry, red licorice and dried thyme stretched across the light body with bright raspberry and strawberry lit with a lofty, saline acidity. Lively, and only 11.5%. 1400 bottles.
