Super Chablis from Eleni et Edouard Vocoret

eleni edouard vocoret

A new discovery for me, courtesy of Roberson. The wines of Eleni and Edouard Vocoret. UK retailer Majestic used to stock the Vocoret Chablis in the early noughties, and they were OK if unspectacular. But Eleni and Edouard have taken over just a small slice of the family domaine (3.3 hectares), and are making these two wines. Dauvissat is the inspiration: Eleni works there part time and this is where they press their wine and get their barrels from, and do the bottling.

Domaine Eleni et Edouard Vocoret Chablis Le Bas de Chapelot 2013 Burgundy, France
12.5% alcohol. Complex, powerful and lively with ripe pear, peach and citrus fruit. Mineral and a bit smoky with high acidity. A lovely linear wine with real depth. Just a faint hint of cabbage and a lovely stony edge. Simply brilliant. 94/100 (£22.95 Roberson)

Domaine Eleni et Edouard Vocoret Chablis 1er Cru Les Butteaux 2013 Burgundy, France
12.5% alcohol. So aromatic, lively and perfumed with grapefruit, lemons and some spicy, rich pear and apple fruit. The palate is concentrated and shows richness and freshness, with pear, grapefruit and minerals, as well as some tangerine. Textured and mouthfilling, this is just sensational. 95/100 (£49.95 Roberson)
