Type: White Wine
Château de Béru has been around since the 12th century & in the family for 400 years. This Chablis is produced from a hillside vineyard rich in Kimmeridgian soil, mainly composed of crushed limestone and marine fossils. The vines are approximately 30 years old. After a conversion to organic viticulture, the domain now also works biodynamically.
The harvest is manual and the grapes sorted in the vineyard then transported to the press in small crates. The pressing lasts several hours and is divided into micro-levels to gently extract the juice. Fermentation takes place in barrels of different sizes, with little new wood. The aging is long, and the wines are aged for at least 2 winters on their lees.
Clos Béru is a Monopoly of Château Béru. The wine comes from a vineyard located 300 meters above sea level, planted around the castle on an outcrop of Kimmeridgian limestone bedrock and surrounded by a wall several hundred years old. It is aged 18 months in demi-muids , followed by 1 year in barrels and 6 months in bottle.
