100% Chardonnay. Vaucopin lies between Chichee and Fley in the south eastern quarter of Chablis. It produces lively, fruit infused wines with a warmer fruit profile and nutty overtones. Boise is a lieu-dit within the vineyard on the highter slopes, and is unique to the family. 20-30% of the wine is raised in burgundy barrique for 12 months.
90% Melon de Bourgogne, 10% Côt. Made with the Methode Ancestrale. A natural co-fermentation is started in tank, after which it is bottled and the fermentation continues in the bottle. This is very much in a Brut style (RS is 5gr/ ltr) the wine has a golden hue and a refreshing palate.

100% Melon de Bourgogne. Named 'Black Sheep' after Vincent, who was one of the first outliers in Muscadet to farm organically, way back in 1996. The wine is made of young vines all within the Cru Communal of Monnieres-Fiacre, which he has chosen to declassify.
66% Melon de Bourgogne, 34% Marsanne. A wine created out of necessity due to the disastrously low yields of 2017. Vincent bought fruit from a friend in Ardeche. As such an unusual blend of Marsanne and Melon B. was born. He liked the wine so much he has contuned to make it year on year. The Southern component lends a touch of weight and spice to the austere Melon B.
100% Melon de Bourgogne. Produced 'Sous Nantais' (underground tanks) from 45yo vines on gniess and mica/shist soils around the Cru village of Monnieres St-Fiacre. Low yields and careful lees ageing and minimal use of SO2 help to create a palate that is complex with a fleshy weight, making this one of the regions' bench-mark wines.
