Domaine Jean-Yves Bizot was technically founded by Jean-Yves’ grandfather, who bought up a small 2.5 hectares of vineyard in Vosne-Romanée, on the side to his career as a doctor. His son followed suit in career, and it wasn’t until 1994 when Jean-Yves decided to take on winemaking as a full-time job that the domaine came into its own. Having added an extra hectare in 2007, Jean-Yves now cultivates his wines in his own unique style. All stems are included for the vinification, and all the wood used in barrique is brand new from Tonnellerie Rousseau, and the wines are bottled barrel by barrel without assembling blends. The wines are resultantly deep and soft, with a certain finesse. Three cuvées of village Vosne Romanée are made, regular, vieilles vignes and Les Jachées. The style of wine is light in colour but fine. Jasper Morris MW, Burgundy Wine Director and author of the award-winning Inside Burgundy comprehensive handbook.
