Jean-Yves Bizot is a rare find in Burgundy these days. His strict and uncompromising standards in the vineyards and his enviable old vine parcels in Vosne-Romanée combine to give us a stellar lineup of miniscule production red Burgundies built for the long haul. Bizot is a professor of viticulture and oenology in Beaune who lives in Vosne across the street from Henri Jayer’s old residence. The two vignerons had neighboring parcels in Vosne and used to discuss vinfication from time to time while working their vines. Bizot decided to adapt some of Jayer’s techniques in his own cellar (in particular cooler temperatures for pre-fermentation), although there are many important differences as Bizot uses exclusively whole clusters, works his vineyards organically, and eschews the use of SO2 during vinification and élevage. Bizot’s top-notch Burgundies somehow still fly mostly under the radar, but the distinct and rigorous that he has forged for his domaine ensure that it will be a model for future generations 
in Burgundy.   

Bizot’s wines need time to open up and reveal their character. Even the village A.O.C. Vosne-Romanée will use about five years of aging to great advantage. All of his Vosne-Romanées require the patience of a premier cru. Bizot’s wines, bottled by hand, barrel by barrel, without filtration, are serious Burgundies for the patient connoisseur, emphasizing purity, subtlety and elegance.
