A cooler and more elegant nose is comprised by notes of citrus, oyster shell and apple scents. While the middle weight flavors are not quite as dense and seductively textured, they are finer as well as more evidently mineral-driven on the delicious and slightly more complex finale.

Resulting from a family of winegrowers dating back 150 years, Daniel DAMPT has joined his domaine with that of his father-in-law's, Jean DEFAIX. The estate currently counts 30 hectares of vines in production, including 16 hectares of CHABLIS and 14 hectares of Chablis Ier Cru of which in particular of Vaillons, Fourchaume, Cote de Lechet, Les Lys and Beauroy. The recently constructed cellaris 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 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. Now Vincent and Sebastien DAMPT work with their parents on the domain. They have made some training periods in New Zealand and Australia. They give some new ideas to the estate.
