Vocoret Chablis: The Next Generation

Vocoret Chablis: The Next Generation

Edouard and Eleni believe you can only make great wine if you are close to the vines. So, they have kept things small: under 5 hectares (the family Domaine is nearly 10 times that). They know their vines, know their plots, and they bottle their vineyards individually so that we can enjoy each – highly individual –  terroir on its own terms.

FEATURED: Bottled Elegance from Pépière

The Muscadets of Domaine de la Pépière are some of the greatest dry whites in the Loire. They are true vins-de-gardes of terroir expression—and they are great values, too. Pépière wines are subtle, complex and poised. In a word: gorgeous. And they age incredibly well, too. This is a perfect candidate for the Reasonable Cellar.
