René Bouvier Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice
La Justice is a climat at the mouth of the Combe Lavaux. We have 3 plots (2 hectares in all / ≈ 5 acres), with 50-year-old vines. The soil is composed of stones of different sizes mixed with clay.
The Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice has all the aromatic and tannic intensity characteristic of this appellation. On this stony ground, grapes acquire aromas of heated rock, Madagascar pepper, Espelette chilli pepper, and ripe black fruits. On the palate, you will find concentrated but fine rounded tannins. A fresh herb note (Chartreuse) reveals itself in a finish with lingering salinity, complementing the elegance of this fine example of a Gevrey-Chambertin wine.
This wine can be kept for 5 to 10 years, but its texture and quality mean that it can also be drunk young.
Depending on the vintage, we use 50% whole-bunch fermentation, and ageing lasts about 12 months in barrels (with 20% of new barrels) and 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
It will go perfectly with roast duck, grilled red meat, sea bream with sun-dried tomatoes and Espelette chilli pepper, roasted Black Bigorre pork, or Jabugo ham.
The family-run Domaine René Bouvier owns 30 hectares of vines, 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 producing red wines and 7 hectares 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.
