Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchets 2020, Daniel Dampt 12 x 75cl

This steep, south, south east facing vineyard looking over the village of Milly and just above Dampt’s home, is set on a stony clay subsoil and enjoys a great aspect. The fruit normally shows a great degree of ripeness and generosity. In such hot years, this left bank vineyard benefits from the shade. There is always a lot of millerandage (small grapes) in this vineyard which produces great concentration, and aids long ageing.
This is an En Primeur wine and special conditions apply.

Domaine Daniel Dampt

Resulting from a family of winegrowers dating back 150 years, the Daniel Dampt estate currently counts 30 hectares of vines in production, including 16 hectares of Chablis and 14 hectares of Chablis Ier Cru (Vaillons, Fourchaume, Cote de Lechet, Les Lys and Beauroy). The recently constructed cellar is equipped with stainless steel tanks. The purchase of modern, powerful cellar equipment has enabled the group to increase its production of bottles, which now stands at 150000 bottles per year. All of Daniel Dampt's wines are produced and bottled by the domaine. This means all his wines are made from grapes grown in his own vine yards, which is a crucial factor in the personnality and quality of the wines.

Tasting Notes

Always a very overt, rich and ripe style of wine, there is a beautiful purity and concentration of fruit, coupled with a piecing lime acidity and a long succulent and tropical fruit finish. An outstanding 1er Cru.
