Eleni et Edouard Vocoret, Chablis Le Bas de Chapelot 2020Regular price $48.00 Save $-48.00
This new project from a power winemaking couple has plenty of buzz around them. The couple met while working the 2010 harvest together in New Zealand. Eleni has also worked a dream job as assistant to the Chablis great, Vincent Dauvissat. The couple went back to Chablis where they took over a small five hectares of the 50 that Edoard’s family owns; the rest of the property is the entity of Domaine Vocoret & Fils. Hand harvesting is unfortunately rare in Chablis, though the couple’s focus on quality farming is admirable. They’ve even sought to focus their project on single vineyards only.
This site with 40 year old vines lies just below the higher classified site of Montée de Tonnerre. There are mixed soils, full of clay, limestone, and Kimmeridgian. The wine is textured, mineral driven, and elegant, the house style.
