Premier Cru, Vaucoupin

The Premier Cru Vaucoupin consists of a narrow strip of clay and lime localized on the sud/sud-est slope of the Chichée plateau. It is renowned for the delicacy of its wines.

In 2006, the Château de Béru took over a 30 are parcel located in the centre of the Premier Cru Vaucoupin. The vines average 30 years of age. The density of plantation reaches 6500 plants per hectare. The pruning system is guyot double shoot.

The steepness of the slope prevents the use of tractors. In order to improve the soils' quality, they are now plowed with a horse or manually worked.Since 2006, considerable improvements have been made, noticeably in the organic prevention of diseases, in the trellising and biodynamic pratices.
