This negotiant side project 'Deci Dela' (meaning from here and there) by Chablis rising star Athenais Beru was born out of the most difficult of circumstances. Athenais lost an entire year's crop in one frost, forcing her to look further afield for fruit. Here, she turns her attention to Chardonnay from the north of the Maconnais. It's given a direct press and aged in stainless steel vats for a year and impresses with generous orchard fruits and a wonderful hit of citrus on the finish.

Domaine Athenais

Athenais Beru is the rising star at the helm of her family’s Chateau de Beru. This ‘negociant’ side project was born out of the most difficult of circumstances. Athenais lost an entire year’s crop in one frost, forcing her to look further afield for fruit and while we wouldn’t wish this misfortune on any grower, we certainly feel privileged to see her apply her touch to grapes and places a long way from Chablis.
