2019 Chablis Premier Cru "Vaillons", Domaine Vincent Dampt
7 to 10 years in cellar.
The vineyards are located in the town of Chablis, in two different areas:
Les Beugnons, which faces southeast. The grapes are pruned using the Double Guyot method.
Chatains, which faces north. These vines are around 10 years old and are pruned using the Single Guyot method.
In both areas, the vines are harvested by machine.
After pressing, cold static setting is carried out for 12 hours. Fermentation occurs in temperature-regulated stainless-steel tanks with selected yeasts and no added enzymes. Malolactic fermentation is then proceeded to lower the wine's acidity. Thereafter, the wine is aged for 9 to 12 months in stainless steel tanks and after fining, the bottles are chilled.
Vaillons has a pale, bright gold colour and appeals to a rich palate. A wonderful mineral finish is accompanied by the fruity character of this chablis.
The wine pairs well with more sophisticated and refined seafood dishes such as scallops, shallots and seabass.
