The estate has been in the family for three generations. Since 1992, it has been run by Bernard Bouvier. Henri Bouvier, Bernard’s grandfather, created the estate in 1910. Henri’s son, Ren? Bouvier, took over in 1950, and extended the estate to an area of 29.65 acres (i.e. 12 hectares) by 1991. The family owns vineyards in six villages, from Gevrey-Chambertin in the south to Dijon in the north. The 18 appellations extend over an overall area of 42 acres (i.e. 17 hectares), and include Bourgogne, C'te de Nuits Village, Gevrey-Chambertin Village, Fixin Village and Marsannay Village, Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru and Grand Cru.
The estate is fortunate enough to possess vines which are an average of 50 years old; some of the Gevrey-Chambertin plots have vines which are over 80 years old.
