Coudray-Bizot; The Philosopher in the Vines

 

A visit to the cellar and vineyards of Jean-Jacques Coudray-Bizot becomes a lesson, not just in grapes and soil, but in philosophy, the intellectual process, and the inner workings of Burgundian culture. As you walk among his vines, Jean-Jacques’ musings range from ideas about viticulture, to development around the city of Beaune, the writings of René Descartes, and the nature of self-doubt. It’s this self-questioning nature that is perhaps most crucial to the understanding of Jean-Jacques’ methods. Everything done in the vineyards and in the cellar is considered, investigated and then considered again. This rigorous and methodological process was passed down to Jean-Jacques from his grandfather Dr. Bizot, who was a surgeon and wine maker at the Hospice du Beaune, and whose favorite saying about wine was, “you have to hurry up and wait!”
