Edouard & Eleni Vocoret Chablis ‘Le Bas de Chapelot’ 2019
Edouard & Eleni have Chablis running through their veins. Domaine Vocoret is a well established large estate. Edouard and Eleni wanted to start their own Domaine and in 2013 purchased 5 hectares from their Father + Grandfather. Eleni has been working for some time for Vincent Dauvissat and he has kindly been mentoring them as they establish their Domaine. Edouard was keen to tell me after working at his father’s Domaine for some years he had earmarked the spots he wanted, particularly the ‘Las Bas de Chapelot’ Lieu Dit which sit’s just under Montee de Tonnerre.
Les Bas translates to below and this plot borders with the bottom of the 1er Cru of Chapelot, part of the Montee de Tonnerre hill, just a few yards away to the north sits Le Clos Grand Cru. The quality of this spot as a ‘village wine’ is outstanding. South East exposition. Deeper soil than the 1er Cru of Chapelot so gives more richness (Clay, Limestone, and Kimmeridgian). 3.2 hects, 40 years old. Wild Fermented in steel then Elevage in barrel for 12 months of 6 to 30 year old barriques.
