Oronce de Beler, born 1978 in Paris decided to leave the city life in 2005 and moved to this ancient house in Vosne-Romanée. The house – Maison Roman – is an old house that dates back to the thirteenth century. Oronce has always been passionate about Burgundy and its different terroirs, so he followed his dream to make great, natural wines by creating his own small Winery in his old cellar.
Oronce buys grapes from friends that farms organic and mainly biodynamic, but plows the vineyards himself with Prosper and Quattro, his horses. He works with quite a wide spread of sites, from Marsannay to Chablis, to be able to show the diversity of the terroirs. The vineyards consists mainly of old vines and the selection of fruit is really strict. Oronce uses a small hand press for all wines. His cellar is small, there´s not much more then 10 barrels in there. The bottling is really carefully done – 2 bottles at a time (by turning a two-way tap) to ensure that only the best juice is bottled. Minimal use of SO2. Wonderful wines from a young vibrant producer.
Like the rest of the wines from the winery, La Maison Romane Hautes-Côtes de Nuits is made by vatting whole bunches. Once the wine is vinified, it ages from 15 to 19 months in barrels of French oak from the Tronçay forest. The winemaking is performed by following the lunar cycles, and working with the help of gravity instead of pumps.
Juicy & fruity Bourgogne. Still young: high in acidity & loads of fresh red fruit. Strawberry & cranberry, already showing hints of leather, forest floor and graphite. Will only get better over the next couple of years.
