Domaine Bizot

Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2017

A very rare bird almost impossible to find where the production on their 9 plots only amounts to a total of 9000 btls. I discovered their wines when I attended a Bizot tasting & lunch at Marea in Feb 2020 where I found their whole cluster wines had this beautiful purity of fruit & transparency. This btl was no different offering up an amazing nose of red cherry & berry fruits, lush & pure on the palate with baking spices, floral & mineral notes. A wine that is so good now you can drink young but will reward time in the cellar. — a month ago

Hi James, a good friend and an avid collector flew in last week to have dinner with me & brought me this btl as a gift as he knew I was a big fan of Bizot. He gets a small allocation every year but was offered no 2017’s so he sourced it from Europe. Cheers!

Alternate Cut Albariño 2019

Hey hi hello. Experimenting is fun. This is the alt cut. I don’t know what the regular one is but am happy to stay with this one. Salted and white peppered golden raisins and orange flower water flowing over all, garnished with lemon rind. Playful and intentionally so. — 6 months ago

Vieilles Vignes Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2006

My 1st btl opened from this producer since attending a tasting & lunch last year at Marea with the winemaker Thomas Berry. I was blown away by the purity of fruit & transparency the wines showed. I have been on a search since to find a few btls of his wines only to find that they are virtually impossible to find in the US & the pricing is prohibitive. I preferred his newer vintages shown at the tasting but the 06 still showed the purity, balance & finish. This had notes of dark cherry, strawberry, Vosne spice, earth, mineral & violet. — 6 months ago

@Ron Siegel Thank your for the kind words. I have to tell you I never heard of the producer until you posted. At their price points you can drink any of the Burgundy titans. This is a long shot question but what the heck. I only bring it up because years ago I was drinking the ‘98 Grange at an afternoon birthday celebration at Hillstones (Houston’s ) at the Citicorp building on Lexington & 53rd and we got into a hardcore discussion about wine with a couple who were visiting NYC. Any chance that was you? My guess is when you visit NYC you are eating at a different level but I always like to take a shot that is why I am asking. It is more likely I sat next to you at Milos or Sistina.

No, I don’t think it was us as I would have remembered the 98 Grange. Love Milos & Sistina can’t wait for this mess to be over so we can get back up there.
