Domaine Eleni et Edouard Vocoret, Chablis (Burgundy, France) “Les Pargues” 2019

($43):  This is another stunning example of Eleni and Edouard Vocoret’s talents.  Like their Chablis Le Bas de Chapelot, their Les Pargues hits above its weight class, though with a slightly different profile.  Flinty and stony, there’s a saline-like character in the finish.  It also is incredible fresh and lively, especially considering the warmth of the 2019 vintage.  Though that vintage produced riper Chablis in general with less energy than usual, Eleni and Edouard Vocoret have avoided that potential pitfall with their wines.  Invite friends, taste these two wines side-by-side and see for yourself that all Chablis is not the same.
