Terroir Notes: 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.
Winemaking Notes: The grapes are harvested by hand. The harvest is directly pressed at a low pressure. The wine then ferments and ages in oak barrels. The Montserre is bottled without fining or filtration. No SO2 was added to this bottling, which is symbolized by the brown label. In contrast, Beru wines with white labels means some additions of sulfites were made.
