Bernard Bouvier has 17 hectares under vine in and around Gevrey and Marsannay.


He has recently moved to new state of the art cellars just north of Gevrey and the quality of his wines has improved even further.


Yields are extremely low and never exceed 30 hl/ha and no chemical sprays are used in the vineyards and everything is hand picked. Fermentation of the reds involves a long, cold maceration and a gentle extraction – what Bernard calls an infusion. About one third new barrels are used. They are bottled without fining or filtration and are fine, pure, concentrated and subtle.


He is currently undergoing organic conversion.


The site of the vineyard “La Justice” is, in theory, on the wrong (east) side of the RN74. However, the soil of small stoney scree, gives a wine of pure, elegant, fine minerality from 45-50 year old vines.


Deep ruby red in appearance with hints of purple – clear, bright and strong.  The elegant nose is of ripe black fruit with floral hints of violet, and a delicate touch of spice.  The palate is ripe, supple and full with lively fruit and gentle tannins. The finish is long and persistent with excellent balancing acidity – very elegant.
