Vaucoupin 1er Cru

  • Vaucoupin 1er Cru


    The Premier Cru Vaucoupin consists of a narrow strip of clay and lime localised on the south east slope of the Chichée plateau. It is renowned for the delicacy of its wines. In 2006 Béru took over a small parcel located in the centre of the Premier Cru Vaucoupin. The vines average 30 years of age. The steepness of the slope prevents the use of tractors. In order to improve the soils' quality, they are now plowed with a horse or manually worked. Aged for 18 months in predominantly old wood with a small sulphur addition at bottling.
