Athénaïs de Béru, VDF Grenache Etcetera "Deci Dela" 6 Bottle Case 75cl

Equivalent Bottle Price £32.00

Natural wine, organic fruit sourced from Domain Milan in Provence, made in the cellar at Chateau de Beru. Milan is one of longstanding top natural grwoers, we love Henri's wines for their style and personality, (like the man himself). Athenais harvested the Grenache fruit for this wine from Le Vallon vineyard at Henri's magnificent domain just outside of St Remy de Provence. The wine is like a more burgundian Vallon than Vallon. Henri thinks of his wines as the Burgundy of Provence. Well here we are Burgundy Milan in 'in Purezza'. Henri would be very pleased the wine is stunning, it is already drinking well but it will age, in 5 years, this wine will be wonderful. From a personal standpoint, the wines at the Chateau de Beru by this creative and dynamic wine maker are some of my favourite in the world and her efforts in 2016 have been rewarded with another range of delicious and hedonistic bottles.

2016 was a very frustrating year for many wine producers including Athénaïs de Béru from Burgundy. Within a single dark cold night in April, she lost all the 2016 vintage from an unforgivable frost. Frost is usually common in Burgundy, especially in Chablis, but this time it has been worse than ever! However bubbly and stubborn Athénaïs always has the last say and the frost was not going to stop her from making wines!

She jumps into her old car and hits the roads towards the warm sunny South of France in search of hopes, new energies and above all healthy grapes from her friends the wine producers. As she gets further South, she gets infatuated with Domaine Milan healthy vines and beautiful grapes, among some other wine producers. She was determined to bring back some of these beautiful sunny grapes encountered throughout her trip and produce a pretty unique 2016 vintage called "Deci Dela" (meaning from here and there). This vintage is born from the union between the solidarity of the wine producers community and Athénaïs's fantastic winemaking skills!

Every bottle of red and white will whisper a generous message of hope and true energy! Enjoy!

Vinification:Grapes coming from Domaine Milan. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Whole bunch fermentation and ageing for 16 months in old oak barrels.
