Tasting note Dampt Chablis
Beautiful, complex dry white wine with a refined aroma of ripe fruit tones and dairy. The smooth, round flavor insert develops strongly 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, easy to keep 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 is perhaps not so well known, the location is extremely beautiful. It is located under the premier cru Côte de Léchet and a little further south is premier cru Vaillons. Sebastien 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 blindly served side by side.
Sébastiens plot in Côte de Léchet is located on the 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 can also be excellent for the elderly. Not for not saved grandpa are always a few boxes.
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, however, undergo the malolactic fermentation that is usual in Chablis, so that the acids are slightly rounded off.
With this impressive premier cru, Dampt proves that top class chardonnay does not always need wood. Less is definitely more in this case. Drink this beautiful wine preferably with a rich fish dish, mushrooms or a creamy burgundy cheese. And don't forget to put a few bottles away, just like Sébastien's grandfather.
