Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons
Beautiful, complex dry white wine with a refined aroma of ripe fruit notes and dairy. The smooth, round flavor insert develops powerfully and ends with a persistent aftertaste. Good to combine with refined fish dishes, but also guinea fowl or veal. Ready to drink from two years after harvest, can easily be kept for up to six years after harvest.
Domaine Sébastien Dampt is located in Milly, just west of the village of Chablis. The name of this village may not be well known, the location is very beautiful. It is clamped under premier cru Côte de Léchet and a little more to the south is premier cru Vaillons. Sébastien has plots in both crus. Although Vaillons may have more of the name than Côte de Léchet, according to Sébastien, tasters often prefer the latter when the two are served blind side by side.
Sébastien's plot in Côte de Léchet faces southeast. This ensures that the grapes can ripen optimally. The sticks are more than 50 years old. The wines from this premier cru are therefore characterized by concentrated fruit and an extraordinary minerality. They are also excellent elderly. Grandpa always has a few boxes of it for good reason.
In terms of vinification, Sébastien keeps it simple. His approach is traditional, as he learned it from his father and grandfather. In Chablis that means fermentation and maturation in steel tanks. Sébastien does not use winemaking techniques such as battonage or wood aging; it is all about pure grape and terroir expression. The wine does undergo the malolactic fermentation customary in Chablis, which rounds off the acids just a little more.
With this impressive premier cru, Dampt proves that top class chardonnay does not always need wood. Less is definitely more in this case. Preferably drink this beautiful wine with a rich fish dish, mushrooms or a creamy Burgundy cheese. And don't forget to put away a few bottles, just like Sébastien's grandfather.
