Oronce de Beler is the young man behind this new superstar address of Vosne-Romanee.
He started the winery in 2005, first purchasing fruit from Jeremy Seysses to create wines under the name "La Maison Romanee". The cellar is tiny and a miniscule 10,000 bottles are produced annually.
The 40 year old vines that produce 'La Justice' are extremely low yielding, producing just 20 Hectolitres per hectare. The little fruit that does come into the winery is sorted meticulously before being fermented using indigenous yeasts and without destemming. The wine is then aged in Barrel for 19 months before transfer to bottle unfiltered and unfined.
The fruit of this wine is all-encompassing, showing generous amounts of cherry, strawberry and raspberry, all perfectly balanced with toasted, herbal and balsamic character. A delicate body and finely tuned tannin complete this wonderful package.
