The Wine

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 (ageing) in barrel for 12 months of 6 to 30 year old barriques. “Very pale colour. Currently a sulphur addition is slightly killing the nose. I am not worried on that score as the wine on the palate is absolutely astounding. There is more fruit than the previous two, a lively greener touch, with exceptional weight right across the palate. Huge length. I am astonished by this as a straight Chablis!” 5 stars - Jasper Morris – Inside Burgundy

Allen Meadows, Burghound (October 2021). (90-92). Drinking window: 2026+ "A deft but perceptible application of wood sets off slightly riper yet still cool and pure aromas of green apple, pear, lemon-lime and oyster shell. The tender but still punchy medium-bodied flavors possess excellent depth for a villages level wine along with very fine length on the mouth-watering finish. Lovely and one to look for.”

About the Wine Maker

This tiny Domaine is only into its third vintage but you may recognise the Vocoret name – the name Vocoret has been around Chablis for quite a while - Edouard is the 7th generation winemaker from the family, who has decided, with his wife Eleni, to begin a solo project. So with the help of Edouard’s father who gifted them just 4.89 hectares to work, off they set on their journey. The approach the couple have taken is quite different from their families larger and more well-known estate, here the couple do everything by hand, the vineyards farmed meticulously and along organic principles, the ferments are conducted with wild yeasts and only old wood is used. These are just some of the principles they learned while working alongside Chablis treasured icon Vincent Dauvissat, perhaps this is in part why these wines are so good, they have learned from the master! Even though its’s only their 3rd Vintage, our allocation has reduced considerably from their first release – obviously there are those in the know getting on board – principally leading restaurants around the world. It’s an absolutely fantastic wine, from a young couple with plenty of history to draw on – time for you to get on board too!
