"A lovely example of Vaillons from Vincent Dampt. Bright and floral, with very appealing notes of white flowers on the nose, combined with white peach on the palate and a distinctive, salty finish. Fine, concentrated and long. High quality."

Tasting Notes
"Young vines, two thirds Beugnons and one third Chatains. Just fined. Pale lemon yellow. This also has more volume than the Daniel Dampt wine. Not so much white fruit but not too trenchant behind either, ... read more

"A lovely example of Vaillons from Vincent Dampt. Bright and floral, with very appealing notes of white flowers on the nose, combined with white peach on the palate and a distinctive, salty finish. Fine, concentrated and long. High quality."

Tasting Notes
"Young vines, two thirds Beugnons and one third Chatains. Just fined. Pale lemon yellow. This also has more volume than the Daniel Dampt wine. Not so much white fruit but not too trenchant behind either, indeed the fresh lemon fruit opens out well at the back. Drink from 2025-2028. Tasted: June 2022."

The Estate
The Dampt family has a long tradition of winemakers, in fact both Vincents father, Daniel Dampt, and grandfather, Jean Defaix, own highly-regarded estates in Chablis. Vincent grew up in the world of wine and decided to follow the family tradition when he was just 14 by enrolling himself in wine school in Beaune. He trained in the Jura and with Leflaive in PulignyMontrachet before heading overseas to New Zealands Marlborough region. In 2002 Vincent began working with his father as winemaker, and in 2004 inherited a few small plots of vineyards, enabling him to create his own estate. Vincents Chablis vineyards are situated on the left bank of the Serein river, on the famous Kimmeridgian marl; a mixture of clay, chalk and marine fossils. The only exception is the Petit Chablis that sits on Portlandian rock. The vines are 40 years old on average and naturally achieve very low yields. In order too preserve every bit of the classic Chablis cut and minerality, Vincent chooses to vinify most of his wines in tank. This is one of the up and coming young leaders of the new generation of Chablis.

About Domaine Daniel Dampt
From a long lineage of vintners, Vincent Dampt continues the family tradition of excellence at Domaine Daniel Dampt et Fils, which was established by his father. Mindful of the generations that came before him, Vincent has changed little, sticking with the simple but effective recipe of growing top quality fruit and allowing the individual terroir of each appellation to shine through, as did his father, Daniel Dampt and grandfather, Jean Defaix, before him.

The construction of a newly built, state-of-the-art winery has allowed Vincent to increase the quality and production of his wines. Located on the outskirts of the small village of Milly beneath the Premier Cru Cote de Lechet, the winery features temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks that allow the wines to be fermented at a constant 18C. From 30 hectares of vineyards split evenly between Chablis A.C. and five premier crus: Vaillons, Beauroy, Cotes de Lechet, Fourchaume and Les Lys, the family produces 12,000 cases annually.

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
