New Wines from Domaine Vocoret
The Best Value in Chablis?
We have the only listing, or the lowest listing by $10-$20/bottle!
Classic Chablis at reasonable prices is increasingly rare. The best producers make exceptional and classic wines, but at prices that are hard to afford for casual drinking. There is an ocean of affordable but mass-market Chablis that lack any sort of typicity.

That drive comes down to one person, … Read the rest

Wine Spectator 97 points “Rose, cherry and spice aromas introduce this light-bodied, saturated version. The flavors add wild strawberry, incense and kirsch notes, while remaining persistent on the kaleidoscopic finish. Feels tense now, yet should develop nicely over time. A mineral element lingers. Best from 2023 through 2045.”… Read the rest
