The palate is well-balanced with good acidity and depth, plenty of fresh citrus fruit intermingling with pear and orange peel, and the oak nicely interwoven on the finish. Give this a year or two to allow the aromatics to fully integrate.
The Vocoret family has been growing vines for over four generations. In the cellars, vinification is still carried out traditionally and bottling takes place exclusively on the property. The uncle/nephew team of Patrice and Jerome Vocoret directs this old (found 1870) 47 hectare Domaine blessed with fully 15 hetare of grand cru, the Domaine owns 50% of its vineyards and leases the other half Vocoret are among a handful of producers in Chablis who continue to ferment their wines in large oak foudres. Once the initial fermentation is over, the wines are transferred to stainless steel vats for their malolactic fermentation and aging up to 12 months. The results are wines that have both fullness and richness of oak fermentation, and the cleanliness and precise definition to their flavor and character of aging in stainless steel.
