Where's Paris Bercy train station?

I'm looking at trains from Beaune back to Paris. There is a direct train that goes to Paris Bercy instead of Gare Lyon. Does anyone knows where that is? I will be staying in the Latin Quarters.
Thanks for your help.

It's close to Gare de Lyon, on the 6 & 14 metro lines.

Chun, if there is a direct train to Gare Lyon then take it. Gare Lyon is closer to the Latin Quarter. The Bercy station is only 1,000 meters from Gare Lyon. There's a Metro station (Bercy) near the Bercy train station. Take line 14 (direction St. Lazare) to Chatelet transfer to Metro Line 4 (direction Porte d' Orleans) into the Latin Quarter. You could also exit at Chatelet and then walk over Ile de la Cite and you will be in the Latin Quarter.

Thanks for your replies. That's not bad. Still pretty close.
I had envisioned Bercy as a suburb of Paris. You know ending up in the equivalent of Long Island instead of NYC.

Chun, I believe the Bercy trains, though direct, are also local trains that take an hour or more longer to get to Paris than the TGV trains that go to Gare Lyon. There are several direct TGV trains, but even with the quick easy transfer in Dijon that route is faster that the Bercy train. Maybe you do not care, but I thought I would point that out.
