2018 Bouvier Gevrey Chambertin
Régis Bouvier in Marsannay achieves a rare hat trick in Burgundy, the mastering of all three colors–red, white, and rosé, through reasonable yields and high-quality terroirs. There’s a beautiful woodsiness on the nose, almost autumnal. It’s not an oak barrel aroma, but a forest aroma. The fruit quality is darker and more earthbound, too, like eating blackberries in the shade. A great balance of red fruit – cherry, currant, a little strawberry – and earthy notes. Medium to full body, velvety, beautiful finish with the right acidity level.

ABOUT THE WINERY
Artifacts and ancient burial sites found around the village of Gevrey-Chambertin suggest that the Romans were the first to plant vines on these now-famous slopes. Perhaps their martial spirits linger, imbuing Gevrey’s wines with the depth and backbone for which they are renowned. Régis blends several plots to produce his Gevrey-Chambertin.
