2018 Eleni et Edouard Vocoret Le Bas de Chapelot Bourgogne
The plots for this wine are below the Premier Crus Chapelot. The location is rather cool and therefore preferred in warm vintages. The Kimmeridge soil with its high proportion of shell limestone means that the Chardonnay is fresh, cool, spicy, and mineral. The expansion in the large wooden barrel makes it a little rounder and, in the best case, more complex. Slightly wet stone on the nose, but also yellow fruit. Cox Orange, salt lemon, white flowers, and a clear, ripe acid structure in the mouth. Eleni et Edouard Vocoret's Le Bas de Chapelot Chablis needs large glasses and some time to unfold. But after opening, it wins with every further minute. A great accompaniment to meals with a lot of aging potential.
Eleni and Edouard Vocoret from Chablis in Burgundy is a young winemaker couple that has only brought a few vintages to the bottle so far, but already have a high reputation in the professional world. The two met while traveling in New Zealand and developed the vision of making wine together. The next stop was Chablis, where Edouard's family runs a prestigious winery. Legend has it that Eleni didn’t like Chardonnay until then, but at a dinner with friends, a mature Chablis Grand Cru was served by the old master Vincent Dauvissat and Eleni's fate was sealed. Since then, she has wanted to make exactly this type of wine and soon afterwards began working in Dauvissat's cellar to study. She also helped the Oudin sisters Nathalie and Isabelle to improve their terroir chablis with their strong character. Soon afterwards, she and Edouard were ready to make their first wine. Edouard's family left them almost 5 hectares of land and nothing can stop them from putting their vision into reality.
