Chablis Orangerie 2018, Château de Béru
Region: Chablis, Burgundy
Production: Organic & biodynamic certified, hand harvested, natural yeasts, low sulphur, unfined & unfiltered
L’Orangerie is located behind Clos Béru, is a small lieu-dit surrounded by ancient fig, apple and pear trees. The top soil of l’Orangerie is atypically rich in clay, producing a wine with a strong fruity character with notes of orange marmalade and warm spices. Yet, because the vine roots plunge deep into soil the wine keeps its typical complex Chablis tensile and mineral characteristics.
Because of the clay, Athénaïs finds the élevage is best suited to Stockinger 500 litre barrels – an Austrian cooper who uses Austrian, German, Hungarian and Romanian – the source of the oak and the larger size impact very little oak influence on the wine
