Château de Béru Chablis 2015

Chablis, Burgundy, FranceChâteau de Béru is an historic estate in Chablis, overseen by 20th generation Athénaïs Béru and in her family's care for the past 400 years. When she came back to the estate in 2010, she converted the entire farm to organics and biodynamics. Béru is the highest hill in the area at 350m, and atop kimmeridgian rocky soils. For this wine, Terroirs de Béru, vines from the village of Béru, 35-40 years old were used, were fermented and spent 12-18 months in stainless steel, and was bottled without fining or filtration with minimal sulphur. This is an exceptional wine that embodies the energies of the estate, savoury with broken stones and shimmering with energy. Green apple, fine salts, dried herbs thread the downy lees palate, one that opens in the glass as it warms to reveal layers of mineral complexities. Beauty now in youth, and will swan even more in age.Tasted: 02 January 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 51.00 private wine shops Producer: Château de BéruDistributors: Racine Wine Imports
