Chablis

The Chablis appellation 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.

The vines are 30 years old. They are conducted in guyot double shoot, the density of plantation is 6500 feet per hectare.

Considerable improvements have been made since 2006, noticeably in the organic prevention of diseases, in the trellising, biodynamic pratices, and in the soil work.

Chablis 2012

Grape variety
100% Chardonnay

Terroir
The Chablis of the domain is produced in a vineyard located on the top of the hill of Béru, above 300 meters. Its terroir was formed during the Kimmeridgian era and is mainly composed of crushed limestone and marine fossils.

Vineyard
The vines are approximately 30 years old. The pruning system is guyot double shape. 6500 vines are planted per hectare.
After a conversion to organic viticulture, the domain has now chosen an orientation towards biodynamy. Béru hillside's terroirs are among the stoniest terroirs of Chablis.

Date of harvest
End of September

Vinification and aging
The grapes are handpicked at maturity in 10kg crates. The harvest is directly pressed – in a pneumatic press at low pressure. The juice is directly transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentations. The wines are aged during 14 to 16 months and are bottled without any fining or filtration. The close attention brought at each step of the winemaking process is the key element, which allows for low sulphur vinification.

2012 vintage
The vintage 2012 was a complicated year in Burgundy, due to an accumulation of heavy rains and hailstorms. But the rays of sun in September contributed to a nice concentration and to a beautiful maturity, which confirm the dynamic of 2012 vintage.
The Chablis 2012 is already well balanced and shows nice aromas, full of finesse and minerality. The ripeness of this vintage is characteristic of our terroirs.
