Owned by the Be?ru family for over 400 years, the old vineyards at the estate had been devastated by phylloxera in the late 19th century. One hundred years later, Count Eric de Be?ru decided to replant the vineyards, especially the famous Clos Be?ru. In 2003, his daughter Athe?nai?s left her career in finance in Paris and came back to the family estate. Athe?nai?s immediately undertook measures to improve the quality of the wines and chose to convert the vineyards to organic viticulture. She made her first vintage in 2005 and since then, the quality and the reputation of the wines have improved every year, becoming a true reference for Chablis wines.
