Domaine Jean-Yves Bizot: history of the estate and characteristics of the cuvée.


The reputation of French wines is well established. From the Middle Ages until the 19th century, French wine regions are known for their expertise in oenology and their massive production of wines. And even if the manufacture of this drink has developed all over the world, the French territory can still boast of having regions renowned for their viticulture. Some of them are large estates, but small estates like Jean Yves Bizot also stand out thanks to the exceptional quality of its wines. In this article, we will dive into the heart of the Jean Yves Bizot estate to see the characteristics of its cuvée.

Presentation of the Jean-Yves Bizot estate and its wine-making process


Domaine Jean-Yves Bizot is a small property operating 1ha 70ca of vines, located in Vosne-Romanée in the Côte d'Or department in Burgundy. The owner, Jean-Yves Bizot inherits this estate from his grandfather who was a surgeon at the Beaune hospital and his pediatrician father. During the lifetime of his grandfather, the estate was still 8 ha but over the transmission of the inheritance, it is reduced to 3 and a halfha, part of the domain having been taken by the domain Coudray-Bizot and that of Nadef. The remainder, about 2 and a half ha was rented between 1971 and 1995.When Jean-Yves Bizot, a geologist by profession who studied oenology, arrived at the estate in 1995, he took over the family's 2.50 ha of vines. Then, he establishes strategies to obtain even limited returns.
In doing so, he begins by studying his terroir to better determine the expression of wines he wishes to obtain. His choice is subtle, pure, sweet, fluid, and elegant notes, that is to say, wines of remarkable quality. His reflection then led him to adopt a reasoned agriculture by embarking on organic viticulture while reducing the amount of SO2 in winemaking. He also decided to carry out a grassing of the vines, to choose a short pruning and to make a careful selection of the ripe vines during the picking.
In fact, the vinification of Jean-Yves Bizot is very simple, almost without mechanical interventions and without inputs. First of all, the grapes are not destemmed when they arrive in the cellar. They are trampled underfoot before being fermented for 5 or 6 days in vats. The field practices the technique of pigeage to promote maceration. Then comes the pressing and settling stage during which the wines are placed in new barrels. The wines stay there for a dozen or twenty days depending on the vintage and without the addition of external yeasts before being decuved with the seal. The pump is non-existent in the cellar. The wines are then aged for 15 to 20 months. After breeding, they are bottled without racking but with the addition of a minimum of sulphiting. Bottling is barrel by barrel without filtration.
Bizot wines needed time to be appreciated by consumers and establish loyal and strong customers in France and abroad. Indeed, at first, customers, accustomed to explosive, dense and tight wines, took time to adapt to his style of wines. But once they tasted his Pinot Rouges, their way of appreciating the Bourgogne changed drastically.

A tiny property with wines of rare beauty


The domaine Bizot mainly produces red wines on its plots of Echézeaux but it also produces some white wines on its plots located in the commune of Vosne Romanée and Magny-lès-Villiers. For the record, in 2019, some of its bottles of rare grands crus very appreciated by connoisseurs flew to auction on Idealwine at a price of 5,035 euros. But on this site you can find wines of also better quality at a more affordable price.

-Jean-Yves Bizot Vosne Romanée Les Jachées 2007 magnum: a rare and special wine available in limited edition.

-Jean-Yves Bizot Bourgogne Rouge 2014 le Chapitre: this exceptional Pinot Noir is pure, expressive, vibrant and juicy at the same time.
