"Lovely and one to look for"
2020 Vocoret Chablis Bas de Chapelot

Posted by Ian McFadden

Eleni and Edouard Vocoret's Chablis' were great from the start, and then in the past few vintages, they took off to incredible heights.

Their 2020s represent yet another high-water mark. You don't have to look any further than Bas de Chapelot. It is a staggeringly good Chablis.

Bas de Chapelot is a formidable site. It sits below the famed 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre. The combination of tension-filled detail and concentration makes Bas de Chapelot a perennial favorite of mine.

In 2020, Bas de Chapelot is blazingly clear and seriously intense. It boasts a penetrating Chablisienne minerality. The total package delivers a level of concentration and precision that you almost never see at the villages level. 

Edouard and Eleni met in New Zealand in 2010. Edouard's family owns Domaine Vocoret & Fils, a large and well-known Chablis domaine. Upon returning to France, Edouard took a few hectares of his family's holdings and started the domaine.

Eleni & Edouard produce Chablis exactly as I like it. They are elegant and emphatically mineral but are also backed by tons of substance. Don't miss this.

Burghound: "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."
