The 2019 Chablis Bas de Chapelot has turned out very nicely in bottle, unwinding in the glass with notes of orchard fruit, fresh pastry, citrus oil, white flowers, peach and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, it's fleshy and concentrated, concluding with a long, saline finish.  William Kelley 91

Very pale colour. Currently a sulphur addition is slightly killing the nose. I am not worried on that score as the wine on the palate is absolutely astounding. There is more fruit than the previous two, a lively greener touch, with exceptional weight right across the palate. Huge length. I am astonished by this as a straight Chablis! Jasper Morris 93

Eleni and Edouard Vocoret continue to thrive, reporting yields of between 50-55 hectoliters per hectare in 2019 and a touch more in 2020, and they're justly satisfied with the results. As I've written before, the Vocorets are among the most ambitious new arrivals on the scene in a region where aspiration is frequently limited to making refreshing bistro wine. This domaine's wines are refreshing, certainly, but they're concentrated, elegantly textural and incipiently complex too. As I wrote last year, the Vocorets farm their vineyards without herbicides or pesticides and harvest by hand. In the cellar, vinification is in tank, followed by élevage in used barrels—very much in the mold of Vincent Dauvissat, one of the young couple's mentors. The big news at this address is that the couple will be taking over more family vineyards, so there will soon be some grand cru Chablis in the cellar here. It couldn't be more richly deserved.
