Domaine Eleni and Edouard Vocoret Current Releases
Eleni and Edouard’s approach in the cellar is consistent across all the wines. Alcoholic and malolatic fermentation is done in stainless steel with natural yeast. The wines are then aged for one year in old barrels. Before bottling the wines are put back in tank for an assemblage of one or two months.
