2021 Domaine Eleni & Edouard Vocoret ‘Le Bas De Chapelot’ Chablis


Edouard and his wife Eleni have Chablis running through their veins. Domaine Vocoret is a well established large estate, which when entering Chablis town from the North is impossible to miss. Edouard and Eleni wanted to start their own Domaine and in 2013 purchased 5 hectares from their Father + Grandfather. Eleni had been working for some time for Vincent Dauvissat and spent time in the early years mentoring them as they established their Domaine.

Back in 2015 when I first visited the Domaine to review their inuargual 2014 vintage 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 ‘Le Bas de Chapelot’ Lieu Dit which sits just under Montee de Tonnerre. Wine making is consistent across all three wines. Wines are wild fermented in tank then elevage takes place in seasoned barrels for 12 months.

Le 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 ha, 40 years old. Wild Fermented in steel then elevage in barrel for 12 months of 6 to 30 year old barriques.

Critic Reviews

“A slightly riper nose combines notes of apple, pear, shellfish and quinine. There is very good richness to the generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors that also possess fine underlying tension that carries over to the clean, dry and lingering finale. This too is a really lovely villages that could be approached young”
