2017 Domaine Dampt Freres Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin

$34.99
2017 Domaine Dampt Freres Chablis 1er Cru Vaucoupin
Here is an excellent Chablis made by the sons of one of Chablis's original names, Bernard Dampt. We tasted this earlier last week and loved how well it represents the 2017 vintage. The Vaucoupain vineyard is comprised of that classic Kimmeridgian limestone soils that give Chablis its impeccable minerality. After harvest, the fermentation occurs mostly in stainless steel tank with 20-30% seeing oak barrels and aging on the lees for at least ten months afterward. There is excellent minerality with yellow and green fruits, wild grasses, and slightly nutty in the background. This has perfect cut and length showing its racy yet elegant nature. Vaucoupin isn't a vineyard we work with a lot in Chablis but is known for its minerality, which definitely steals the show here and is located very close to the vineyard Mont de Milieu which many Chablis fans are sure to know. This isn't the current release, but it shows very well with the little extra age and is not a readily available bottle here in the USA. A great buy for fans of Chablis, especially those that enjoy minerality.
