Domaine Sébastien Dampt
Chablis “Côte de Léchet”
1er Cru White 750 ml
Tasted: Oct 10, 2019
Producer note: Sébastien Dampt is the son of Daniel (see above) and the wines are made in the same facilities and with the same philosophies. Readers should know that Dampt is a member of the “no oak” school, at least for the non-négociant wines. Note that the importers for Daniel and Sébastien are not the same.

Tasting note: A slightly fresher nose is comprised by pretty aromas of orange peel, minerality reduction and a touch of algae character. There is reasonably good vibrancy to the attractively textured flavors that exude a subtle bead of minerality while exhibiting good if not special depth and persistence.
