Style: Pale Ale
Region: Burgundy, France
Notes: Following a career at the famous Revue des Vins de France, Oronce de Beler came back to its old 13th century house (La Maison Romane), in Vosne-Romanée in 2005 to follow his dream to make natural wines in Burgundy. He started as a micro négociant, buying organic and biodynamic fruit from old vineyards mostly in Côtes de Nuits (Vosne-Romanée, Gevrey- Chambertin, Fixin, Marsannay), but also in Hautes Côtes de Nuits, Hautes Côtes de Beaune and Chablis. He plows the vines himself with its horses. He also believes a wine is made in the cellar, hands-off but full attention. He is looking for finesse and purity in its reds with whole cluster fermentation, while he strives for minerality and energy in its whites. Since last year, Oronce has started a micro brewery in Nuits Saint Georges where he makes elegant IPAs and wild ales. He also breeds Corsican pigs and veals from which he makes excellent charcuterie!
