In many ways, Edouard and Eleni Vocoret have become an emblem of the changing face of Chablis, young hip winemakers with new ideas and ideals. Fresh blood is important for the region, but sometimes ambition is not matched by pragmatics; you can have all the talent and plaudits you like, but vineyard land can be too expensive to buy or rent, and without that, you ain’t gonna go far. Fortunately, that is not the case here, and Edouard Vocoret, barely able to contain his delight, told me that their vineyard holdings will expand thanks to new fermages with his family, including Grand Crus of Valmur, Les Clos and Blanchot, plus Premier Crus of Séchet, Chatain, Fôrets, Montée de Tonnerre, as well as additions to Butteaux and their three Chablis Villages. There are exciting times ahead.
