Eleni and Edouard Vocoret work a small parcel of vines that formally belonged to Edouards family estate Vocoret et Fils. They vinify each plot individually and take a minimal intervention approach to their winemaking and a focus on organic viticulture.
Having met working in New Zealand they eventually moved home with Edouard working at the family estate and Eleni working for Vincent Dauvissat and Natalie Oudin. Eventually Edourards father agreed to let them have their own vines and from there they slowly created what are fast becoming some of Chalbis most exciting wines.
The grapes for their Bas de Chapelots come from a 3.2 hectare vineyard situated just below the famous 1er Cru ‘Montée de Tonnerre.’ Everything is hand picked and grapes are pressed in whole bunches before moving to undergo malolactic fermentation over the next 6 months.
This shows notes of stone fruits and citrus; beautiful minerality and refreshing acidity with a steely finish; finely balanced.
