Chardonnay from a small and special place, inextricable from Athénaïs and the long line of her family members tending this small vineyard. In the glass, this wine is dense and hazelnutty with depth of salt and fat white Burgundy lovers feast on. The Clos de Béru is the parcel immediately adjacent to the family’s castle and was replanted in the 80s at the planting density of 6500 vines per hectare from a massale selection of vines. The vineyard is at 300 meters elevation on a very thin lime-clay topsoil on Kimmeridgean limestone. A true clos, surrounded by the same wall since the 12th century, recognized for its exceptional terroir since then. The 2018 is a delightful vintage, unusual concentration of both fruit and acid. Gently pressed chardonnay which is then fermented (always with native yeasts) and aged in larger oak barrels and foudres, not fined or filtered, and with only the smallest addition of sulfur. The Clos Béru is a great wine to sock away for ten years or more.
