The wonderful Chablis wines that are produced by Domaine Daniel Dampt & Fils in Burgundy deserve their fine reputation. They are admired by loyal enthusiasts – both professionals and private customers – in France and throughout all five continents .
The history of the Domaine Daniel Dampt et Fils in Chablis, northern Burgundy , dates back more than 150 years. With 10 hectares (25 acres ) of Chablis Premier Cru vineyards, 12 hectares (30 acres) of Petit Chablis vineyards and some wonderful bottles from the Chablis Grand Cru appellation, the family domaine manages its vineyards sustainably to protect the environment and safeguard the natural characteristics of the Chardonnay grape.
Domaine Daniel Dampt et Fils is in the old village of Milly, which has now become part of Chablis. It is independently run, managing its own winemaking process from start to finish. The current generation – Vincent Dampt and Sébastien Dampt – integrate the traditions and advice passed on to them by their father, Daniel Dampt, and their grandfather, Jean Defaix. They are also innovative and take exceptional care of the vines, their fruit and the wines they produce, patiently maturing them in stainless steel tanks and honouring the fine qualities of the Chablis appellation.
Daniel Dampt & Fils produces white wines from parcels within the four Chablis appellations: Grand Cru, Premier Cru, Chablis and Petit Chablis. Chardonnay contributes its power and expressiveness to the wines produced from these vineyards, taking advantage of the varied exposure of the slopes sculpted by the river Serein, a tributory of the Yonne. There are wines for all tastes: refreshing, lively and bright, or ample, supple and round, and the proof of the wine – naturally – is in the tasting.
With its impressive variety: Bougros from the Grand Cru vineyards, Vaillons, Côte de Léchet, Les Lys, Beauroy and Fourchaume from the Premier Crus, and other parcels within the Chablis and Petit Chablis appellations, Domaine Daniel Dampt & Fils draws on each wine’s natural characteristics to bring out its very best. From sustainable vineyard practices that respect the vines and carefully ploughed soils, right through to the bottling process, the work at the domaine is independently managed. All this care and painstaking attention is reflected in the quality of the wines that are so lovingly produced by Vincent and Sébastien Dampt.
