Ostia Tempore is a rare wine, far from American standards. The history of this unique wine is linked to Bertrand de Villaine, co-manager of the mythical Domaine de la Romanée Conti. In love with foreign wines and the Pinot Noir grape variety, his travels in the United States led him in 2008 to discover an exceptional terroir in Oregon, and more particularly in the Willamette Valley, Pinot Noir's favorite terroir in the United States.
The grapes that make up Ostia Tempore all come from a single climate located on the appellation "Eola Amity Hills", on vines planted by Bertrand de Villaine himself since 2008. The methodology is obviously impregnated with Burgundy, everything is grown organically. To our delight, a Chardonnay has also recently been produced there. The wines in both colors are stunning, oscillating between aromatic power and velvety mouth, on an aromatic weft of precious woods, camphor, peony, dried flowers and black fruits infused for the Pinot Noir version. On the Chardonnay version, the wine is on par with the greatest whites of the Côte de Beaune. and we weigh our words! To discover urgently.
