A classic Côte de Léchet nose features plenty of citrus character along with notes of oyster shell, mineral reduction and an appealing spice nuance. There is fine volume to the caressing but decidedly punchy flavors that could also use more depth, but the stuffing appears to be present for that to occur and my rating assumes that it will if allowed a few years of bottle age first.

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.
