The renewal that animates the vineyards of Auvergne is that of a new generation of winegrowers striving to highlight terroirs that have been abused or forgotten for too long. Respect for the soil and biodiversity, natural vinifications, freedom of expression outside the constraints of appellations, such as the uncompromising approach of Pierre Beauger. After training with many pioneering winegrowers (Marcel Richaud, Thierry Puzelat, etc.), Pierre Beauger returned to his native Puy-de-Dôme.
From 2001, he created a vineyard with rented vines (Gamay, Chardonnay) and soon plantations (Pinot gris, Pinot noir, Sauvignon, Syrah…) on abandoned plots that had never been chemically treated. His estate is now located in Montaigut-Le Blanc and Champeix (also a few plots in Jussat), south of Clermont-Ferrand, on volcanic soil, between 500 and 620 m above sea level, on terraced hillsides facing south. No weed killer or pesticides, treatments reduced to sulfur and bouillie bordelaise, plant-based treatments: respect for the soil and the environment, and grapes of the highest quality for vinification without inputs and without forceful interventions, then aging in old barrels. Completely natural wines which can contain some residual carbon dioxidet: atypical wines, without any appellation or label.
