Domaine Vincent Dampt En Primeur 2019

These 2019s are Vincent Dampt’s fifteenth vintage. We have represented the domaine as exclusive UK agent since Vincent established it, in the 2005 vintage.

Chablis’ famous Kimmeridgian soils consist of calcareous clay, limestone and marlstone, with embedded marine fossils. Many attribute Chablis’ hallmark minerality to this link with the sea.

The villages and premiers crus bottlings see no oak. Half of the barrels come from the François Frères cooperage and half from Seguin Moreau.

CHABLIS 1ER CRU VAILLONS

Vaillons is known for its generous fruit, power and poise, due to its favourable south-eastern aspect as well as its Kimmeridgian soils. The vineyard lies southwest of Chablis, to the west of the Serein river. Vincent’s parcel is particularly abundant in clay, with vines averaging over 35 years old. An impressive hazelnutty richness is refreshed by green apple fruit and a tensile line of acidity which brightens and shapes the palate. Very classical, with a long, delicate finish.

CHABLIS 1ER CRU LES LYS

Les Lys is a small climat within Vaillons, planted around 60 years ago by Vincent’s grandfather. It faces northeast, towards the grands crus across the valley. Yields are very low and, with less afternoon sunlight, the grapes take longer to ripen. As tends to be the way, this is more ephemeral and floral on the nose than Vaillons, with lemon and lime top notes. The palate is similarly taut and citric on the entry, opening into a ripe-fruited mid-palate, of crunchy white peach fruit and poised acidity. Defined and gently grippy on the finish.

CHABLIS 1ER CRU CÔTE DE LÉCHET

This is a special site, again on the western side of the Serein river, just above the village of Milly. With its 38% gradient and 40 year old vines, the yields here are small. Exposure to morning sunshine allows the vines to benefit from luminosity. A mineral-driven chalky, baked earth nose, with fine citrus fruit and white flowers. The palate is wonderfully textural, rich even. Crisp apple and pear fruit are underscored by a honeyed resonance which points to a wine with real ageing potential. The finish is driving and focused.

CHABLIS GRAND CRU BOUGROS, MAISON DAMPT

An expressive nose, with white peach, apricot and grapefruit notes, pointing to the greater ripeness potential of Chablis’ grand cru sites. The palate has more breadth and a hint of cedary spice from the old oak barrels and more oxidative handling. That steely acidity is the core around which the peach and apple flavours revolve, with glimpses of brioche, honey and peppery spice. Still taut, with impressive extract, this gives just a glimpse of what will be a long-lived wine. Recommended.
