Daniel Dampt, Chablis 750ml 2017France, Burgundy
Resulting from a family of winegrowers dating back 150 years, Daniel Dampt has joined his domaine with his father-in-law, Jean Defaix. The estate currently has 30 hectares of vines in production, including 16 hectares of Chablis and 14 hectares of Chablis Ier Cru of which in particular are Vaillons, Fourchaume, Cote de Lechet, Les Lys and Beauroy.
Daniel's, and now Vincent's philosophy is to evidence the superb characteristics that Chardonnay can display when grown on the famous Kimmeridgien clay. For this reason there are no barrels at the Domaine. All the wines are aged in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling to retain Chablis characteristic freshness. Recently Vincent Dampt increased the quality and production of his wines with a modernized twenty-first century cellar.
'There is enough post-bottling reduction to push the underlying fruit to the background. Otherwise the vibrant, delicious and attractively textured medium weight flavors possess an unusually sophisticated mouth feel, all wrapped in an impressively complex and persistent finish. This is an outstanding villages and very much worth your attention for its level.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 90/100
Daniel Dampt produces a classic Chablis with Granny Smith apple and oyster shell notes. It has a crisp, granite-like bouquet and needs a little time in the glass to unfurl. The palate is well balanced and refreshing.
