Domaine Rene Bouvier

Working with the soil to respect biodiversity has been a priority with us for more than 20 years. The major levers for our philosophy are respect for both microbial life and auxiliary fauna, while obtaining quality vines through sélection massale (visual selection of the most robust vine plants).
Perfectly ripe grapes are beautiful grapes. Tasting the grape berries on the vine determines the best date of harvest for each plot. The choice of this date is very important: it will give us 80% of the wine’s style.
Our goal is to obtain perfect ripeness, so as to have silky and delicate tannins in our red wines, and to keep the freshness of the fruit to give energy and balance to our white wines.
We seek to capture what the grape gives naturally, without forcing the potential of the terroir or the vintage. In keeping with this philosophy of respect for the vine, we do very little extraction, but work mainly on infusion, so that balance and vibrancy are gently encouraged, day after day during maceration.
