Several recent discussions here on Vinography have touched on Biodynamics. It's a compelling subject if only for the way it tends to bring out strong opinions. Those of us who like to opine about it don't know as much about it as those who actually practice it on a daily basis, and those folks probably don't know as much as a guy named Nicolas Joly, the owner and winemaker of Clos de la Coulee de Serrant, and the de facto spokesman for the movement. I've missed my opportunity to listen to Joly speak here in San Francisco with much regret and was therefore very pleased several weeks ago to come across this long video in which he introduces, provides background on, justification for, and detailed information about the practice of Biodynamics.
I won't editorialize about it, but I'd love to hear your thoughts.
