"Has the stamp of flinty aromas with light honey, peaches and mango cream. The palate’s very round, smooth and open-knitted. Super smooth, mellow and supple. Gently nutty, very suave and elegant. Drink now or hold."

Product Description:

"Bas de Chapelot is a 3 hectare parcel just below Montée de Tonnerre. The entire élevage is in neutral barrel.

Edouard and Eleni met while apprenticing in New Zealand. They married and returned to Chablis to take over a small piece of Edouard's family domaine, Domaine Vocoret & Fils.

Their primary focus with their 3.3 hectare inheritance was farming. The first couple of vintages were sold in bulk shortly after harvest as they converted the vineyards to lutte raisonnée and hand harvesting. 2013 was their first release and they wasted no time showing off their vision of pure and terroir driven Chablis.

Given their attention to detail and what they’ve already been able to accomplish given only three vintages, the future is bright.

They are currently producing two wines: Chablis "Bas de Chapelot" and Chablis 1er Cru "Butteaux." Bas de Chapelot comes from 3ha just beneath Montée de Tonnerre while the Butteaux parcel is 0.3ha." - Importer
