Bas de Chapelot comes from a 3.2 hectare parcel just below Montée de Tonnerre. It is the Vocoret's only parcel on the right side of the river bank. The soil is deep, clay and limestone, and Kimmeridgian (moyen). The vines are now 40 years old vines and due to their proximity to the riverbed are very exposed to frost.
Edouard and Eleni met while working the 2010 harvest in New Zealand. Soon after they were married and on their way back to Chablis to take over a small piece of Edouard's family domaine. Edouard's family owns Domaine Vocoret & Fils, a large and established domaine, with over 50 hectares planted.
Their primary focus with their first 4.9 hectares was farming. The first couple of vintages were sold off in bulk as they readjusted the vineyard to lutte raisonnée and hand harvesting.
Both Eleni and Edouard exude a passion and energy that comes with a new generation stepping in and creating a different path for their winery. With already a couple of vintages under their belt, we think they've got a very bright future ahead.
