WINE DETAILS

“The hill of priests” is the highest hill in Beru made up of Chablis’ famous kimmeridgian limestone soils. Hand harvested and fermented with native yeasts, this wine sees 100% malolactic fermentation and is aged for 18 months in neutral oak and stainless steel. No fining, filtration, or added sulphites.

Athénaïs de Béru

The Béru family has owned the historical Château de Béru domain for 400 years.

Until the philloxera crisis, when all the vines were uprooted, at the beginning of the 20th century, the domain used to rely solely on the wine for its revenues. It was only in 1987, that the Comte Éric de Béru, out of passion for wine, undertook to replant the entire vineyard, and in particular, the famous Clos Béru.

His wife, Laurence and their daughter Athénaïs are now running the domain. They have invested considerable means to improve the production quality and give a fresh start to the domain. These tremendous efforts and the choice to adopt organic farming are beginning to bear fruits, and are noticeable in the vintages that have been vinified by Athénais and her team since 2004.

The Chablis covers a wide area and offers very contrasted types of terroirs. In the particular case of the Château de Béru, the domain’s parcels cover a total of 8 hectares. They all are located in the Béru area and give wines that express the mineral and iodised notes typical of the village wines.
