Domaine Vincent Dampt Chablis 2020

Vincent Dampt is a name to watch. He is the son of Daniel Dampt and the grandson of Jean Defaix but this is his own enterprise. Apparently Vincent enrolled in Beaune wine school at the age of only 14. He trained in the Jura and with Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet before gaining experience in Marlborough. (Many a young Burgundian seems to head to New Zealand before settling down back home.) In 2002 Vincent began working with his father as winemaker and in 2004 inherited a few small plots of vineyards, enabling him to start creating his own estate. Vincent’s Chablis vineyards are situated on the left bank of the Serein river, on the famous Kimmeridgian marl with its mixture of clay, chalk and marine fossils – except for the Petit Chablis vines that sit on Portlandian rock. The vines are 40 years old on average and naturally achieve very low yields. Oak is rarely employed and the wines really do seem to express the special distinctive quality of Chablis – a sort of liquid stoniness, if that doesn’t sound too impossible! 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.
