Details

CHABLIS 1ER CRU VAUCOUPIN 2018, Biodynamic wine, pure elegance, nature and the incredible Chardonnay grape coming together to produce something very beautiful. The Premier Cru Vaucoupin consists of a narrow strip of clay and limestone located on the sud/sud-est slope of the Chichée plateau. It is renowned for the delicacy of its wines. The vines average 30 years of age and the steep sloped vineyards are only worked using horses. The fantastic 2018 vintage a full and lush wine with a incredible depth of fruit and concentration whilst maintaining the finesse of the 1er Cru vineyard site. Outstanding Chablis.


Chateau de Beru is a 400 year old domaine hosting some of the best terroir in Chablis. It is a magnificent estate, full of grandeur and history. The ornate rooms are filled with paintings and furniture that date back centuries. Staying there is like stepping back in time to pre-revolutionary France with 4 poster beds and stunning views across the walled vineyards and hills of Burgundy. For centuries the potential of the beautiful 17th century estate went unrealised until in the 1980s Count Eric de Beru, fuelled by his passion for wine replanted the vines including the unique walled vineyard, Clos Beru! When he became ill the vineyards were rented and the grapes sold to the cooperative until in 2004 his daughter Athenais took over and revolutionised the estate, finally realising its great potential. After a visit to Argentina and an encounter with coffee farmers using biodynamics to produce their beans, she returned home and despite some resistance convinced her parents that the future of their wine lay in biodynamic production. Athenais has been working the 15 hectares of vines with biodynamic methods since 2008 and since then the quality and purity of the wines has soared. She is blessed with fabulous Chablis terroir, calcareous-clay soils of the Kimmeridgien era (notably with deposits of fossilised oysters dating back 150 million years ago) at 300 metres above sea level. Only using natural methods including horse rather than tractors, can this hallowed ground be protected and maintained. The wines are pure and alive and marry intensity with immense finesse. Athénaïs has also joined the 'Femmes et Vins de Bourgogne' (Women and Wines of Burgundy) an association set up to enable talented female wine makers - who are unfortunately still scarce in Burgundy - to share their experience and passion. Recently she has started to ferment a very small amount of fruit with the skins in Amphorae to make tiny quantities of orange wines, watch this space, we will get some, although not much!
