Beauger Pierre

The revival of the Auvergne vineyards is that of a new generation of winegrowers committed to enhancing the value of terroirs that have been abused for too long. Respect for the soil and biodiversity, natural vinification, freedom of expression outside the unsatisfactory constraints of the appellations, such is the uncompromising approach of Pierre Beauger, a free and independent winemaker.

After a long apprenticeship, notably with pioneering winemakers (Marcel Richaud, Thierry Puzelat...), 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 of land 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 a volcanic terroir, between 500 and 620 m altitude, on terraced hillsides facing south. No weedkillers or pesticides, reduced treatments with sulphur and Bordeaux mixture, decoctions of plants: respect for the soil and the environment, and grapes of the highest quality for vinification without inputs and without brutal interventions, then ageing in old barrels. Totally "natural", the wines may contain a residue of carbon dioxide and a deposit: atypical wines, without any appellation or label. A winemaker who is decidedly free and independent!
