The 4-hectare Clos Béru is surrounded by a stone wall built in the 12th century, and the rows run right next to Chateau de Béru. The estate's emblematic single vineyard wine comes from here. The Chardonnay grapes picked from densely planted 40-year-old vines are pressed in whole bunches, then the spontaneous fermentation begins in barrels, followed by two and a half years of ageing also in barrels, then another six months in bottles. It’s intense, powerful, vibrant and mineral in every aspect.
Athénaïs de Béru left behind a successful career when she returned from the financial world in 2006 and took over the family estate from her father. From the first day, she treated organic cultivation as a basic principle, and the next step came quickly after the transition – since 2011, the entire estate has been certified biodynamic. The wines are spontaneously fermented, mainly in barrels, and then after a longer ageing period, they are bottled unfiltered, with minimal or no added sulphur. In the wines of Athénaïs, the precise and sharp character that’s usual in the wine region is replaced by the typical character of non-interventionist winemaking and long ageing. Béru wines are softer with broad structure, oxidative notes and high energy.
