The family-run Domaine René Bouvier owns 30 hectares of vines (≈ 74 acres), all in the Côte de Nuits. The estate, located in Gevrey-Chambertin, has been managed by Bernard Bouvier since 1992.
The winery produces a range of 26 different wines, ranging from the Bourgogne appellation to the most famous Grand Cru wines: Charmes-Chambertin and Echezeaux. The grapes are entirely harvested by hand, with 23 hectares (≈ 57 acres) producing red wines and 7 hectares (≈ 17 acres) producing white wines, including Marsannay Le Clos, a monopole (a vineyard owned by only one winegrower). The estate vineyards extend from the ancient terroirs (a combination of soil, slope, exposure, climate, and human expertise) of the Dukes of Burgundy, near Dijon, to the well-known wine-producing village of Vosne-Romanée. Most of the climats (vineyard plots in Burgundy) are located in the appellations Marsannay, Fixin, and Gevrey-Chambertin.
