This is the highest point in the hill of Béru. The name Montserre literally means the mount of the Serres, the Serres being a typical geological conformation made from piled up fossilized sharp lime layers. Wines from this terroir express a strong personality, marked by its texture, concentration and mineral, salty, smoky notes and hints of iodine.

    From the limestone-dominated soils of the highest-altitude lieu-dit in the domaine's holdings, the 2017 Chablis Le Montserre exhibits aromas of lemon zest, green apple, wheat toast and iodine. On the palate, it's even more vibrant, chalky and incisive than the Terroirs de Béru bottling that preceded it, with the elegantly sun-kissed fruit tones that typify the vintage married with all the cut and thrust of the site.
