100% Chardonnay
Screwcap

Vincent Dampt's Petit Chablis vineyard extends across a plateau overlooking the town of Fyé, Chablis. It faces west and the average age of the vines is 10 years old. After malolactic fermentation the Petit Chablis is aged on its lees in stainless steel tanks for 6 months to preserve all the freshness of the Chardonnay grape variety.

The vines for this Petit Chablis are located on a more calcareous Portlandian soil, thus giving a fruitier and more supple wine than Domaine Vincent Dampt's Chablis. The 2021 is an excellent drinking wine that is a very good introduction to wines from the estate. Aromas of green apple and pear dominate on the nose with hints of dried herbs and wet stone. On the palate it is dry and crisp with plenty of minerality and citrus. It finishes floral and extremely refreshing.

"There is an abundance of typical Chablis elements adding breadth to the exceptionally fresh aromas of green apple, floral, citrus and discreet spice nuances. The mouthfeel of the middleweight flavors is at once caressing yet punchy while displaying a beguiling texture that carries over to the bone-dry, focused and lingering finish. This is a quality Petit Chablis from 2021."

“From a stony plot in Beines which came through well, and a bit of Fyé . Bottled under screwcap. Just a touch more colour here and perhaps the most fruit on the nose, while retaining the correct steely character. Some light yellow fruit plus salinity and very good length. Tasted June 2022.”

"This Petit Chablis from vineyards in Fyé and Beines really over-delivers at the price. Half of the wine is fermented in older wood, adding some extra layers of complexity. Youthful, fresh and showing much more concentration than many of its competitors, it has a winning combination of mouth-watering acidity and crunchy citrus fruit."
