Domaine Eleni et Edouard Vocoret
Edouard and Eleni met while working the 2010 harvest in New Zealand but returned 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 shortly after harvest as they converted the farming to lutte raisonnée and committed to hand harvesting.
They are currently producing two wines: Chablis "Bas de Chapelot" and Chablis 1er Cru "Butteaux." Bas de Chapelot comes from a 3.2ha parcel just beneath Montée de Tonnerre while the Butteaux parcel is 0.3ha.
Both Eleni and Edouard exude passion. With already a couple of vintages under their belt, we think they've got a very bright future ahead.
