Bernard Bouvier (who has taken over his father René’s estate) is no stranger to Southend - he was an exchange student here when he was 14!
Nowadays he runs an impressive but small operation in the heart of the Côte de Nuits. His wines are always powerful and concentrated, long lived and complex. Everything is vinified with natural yeasts, no fining or filtration and only a small amount of sulphites at bottling. Old school winemaking at its best.
The Cote de Nuits Villlages is a brilliant entryway into Bouvier's wines with complex flavours of red fruits, spice and classic Burgundian earthiness
Grape varieties: Pinot Noir
Winemaking method: Organic / biodynamic
