Tasting Note

Vocoret is a traditional, family-owned winery in Chablis; Patrice is the fourth generation of his family to farm the vineyards, but it was his grandfather who was the first to bottle the wines in 1930. Of the winery’s forty hectares, seventeen hectares are 1er Cru, sixteen hectares are village level, four hectares are grand cru and the balance is Petit Chablis. The winery follows sustainable agriculture and is fortunate to work with many old vines. The vines average 35-40 years-old and the oldest vines were planted in 1958.

Patrice’s goal is to make wines “that show the fresh, crisp minerality of Chablis.” Grapes are sorted by hand before going in the pneumatic press; the 1er cru and grand cru wines are fermented and aged in large foudres and demi-muids, and the village is made entirely in stainless steel. All of the wines are racked off the lees after malolactic fermentation.


Wine & Cheese Pairing

For cheese pairings, you may want to try cheese that has a tangy, salty, or slightly creamy flavor, such as goat cheese, feta, or parmesan. These types of cheese have enough acidity to balance the wine’s minerality, while adding some complexity to the pairing.

Another great option is a creamy and buttery cheese such as brie or camembert. These types of cheese have a mild flavor that can complement the wine’s crispness and freshness.
