Vocoret is not a new name in Chablis. Edouard Vocoret is the 7th generation in his family to be a winegrower. This part of the Vocoret story, however, is very new.
After finishing his studies Edouard went to New Zealand to work. It was there he met his wife, Eleni, who was working at the same winery. They then continued travelling together through New Zealand and Australia before returning to France to work the vintage at the family domaine. Eleni continued working in Chablis for legendary winemaker Vincent Dauvissat who became one of her mentors.
In 2012 Edouard’s father offered the young couple a few parcels to create their own domaine and Domaine Eleni & Edouard Vocoret was born. Farming is close to organic with no herbicides or pesticides being used. The 3 different plots they own in AOC Chablis are bottled separately to allow the different terroirs to express themselves.
In the winery the hand-picked grapes are pressed as whole bunches and then fermented in stainless steel tank. Malolactic fermentation also takes place in tank.
After 6 months the wines then move into used barrels where they remain for one year before bottling.
The result is wines that are straight, precise and mineral. The very definition of great Chablis.
The 2019 vintage will be available in spring 2021.
