The land around Château Béru has been famed for its wines for hundreds of years! The Béru family have owned the estate for 400 years, and even writings by 9th-century monks note the vineyards growing here.
Despite its long history, current owners Laurence de Béru and her daughter, Athénaïs, were aware that the soil was fragile, and that its survival depended on moving away from damaging conventional farming techniques. The fertilisers, pesticides and damage brought on through the use of tractors were gradually destroying the microorganisms in the soil that had served winemakers so well for so long. Since 2005, only organic methods have been used on the estate, and from 2010 they began to convert to biodynamic practices. Now only a limited amount of natural chemical intervention is used, such as treatment with sulphur, and a horse-drawn plough prepares the soil, rather than a tractor.
Côte Aux Prêtres (Hill of priests)is a single plot Chablis from the highest hill in Béru at 300m. The soil is made up of small limestone scree eroded by the wind and rain that effect this exposed vineyard.
The grapes are hand-harvested with a whole bunch long gentle press cycle followed by natural malolactic fermentation all in oak followed by further ageing for 12 months in old oak barrels and 1 year in a stainless steel tank. No filtration, no fining and no sulphites added.
