ABOUT THIS WINE:

Bas de Chapelot comes from a 3.2 hectare parcel just below Montée de Tonnerre. It is the Vocoret's only parcel on the right side of the river bank. The soil is deep, clay and limestone, and Kimmeridgian (moyen). The vines are now 40 years old vines and due to their proximity to the riverbed are very exposed to frost.

Eleni and Edouard’s approach in the cellar is consistent across all the wines. Alcoholic and malolatic fermentation is done in stainless steel with natural yeast. The wines are then aged for one year in old barrels. Before bottling the wines are put back in tank for an assemblage of one or two months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur addition.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:

Husband and wife duo Eleni and Edouard Vocoret are part of an exciting new generation of Chablisien producers. (If the Vocoret name sounds familiar, it’s because Edouard's family owns Domaine Vocoret & Fils, a large Chablis Domaine renowned for its solid, classically styled wines.)

The pair met in 2010 while working harvest in New Zealand but returned to Chablis to run a small 5-hectare plot in the family vineyard. Inspired by mentor and Chablis icon Vincent Dauvissat, they embrace single-vineyard Chablis production with a focus on traditional farming and vinification methods.

Their wines are characterised by brilliant minerality and a bracing clarity of flavour that is a testament to their conscientious farming, low yields, and a deft hand in the winery.
