Daniel Dampt et Fils

From a long lineage of vintners, Vincent Dampt continues the family tradition of excellence at Domaine Daniel Dampt et Fils, which was established by his father. Mindful of the generations that came before him, Vincent has changed little, sticking with the simple but effective recipe of growing top quality fruit and allowing the individual terroir of each appellation to shine through, as did his father, Daniel Dampt and grandfather, Jean Defaix, before him.

Introducing Daniel Dampt et Fils

Vincent Dampt increased the quality and production of his wines with a modernized twenty-first century cellar. Located on the outskirts of the small village of Milly beneath the Premier Cru Cote de Lechet, the winery features temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks that allow the wines to be fermented at a constant 18°C. From 30 hectares of vineyards split evenly between Chablis A.C. and five premier crus: Vaillons, Beauroy, Cotes de Lechet, Fourchaume and Les Lys, the family produces 12,000 cases annually.

Daniel's, and now Vincent's philosophy is to evidence the superb characteristics that Chardonnay can display when grown on the famous Kimmeridgien clay. For this reason there are no barrels at the Domaine. All the wines are aged in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling.
