A Tour of the Yonne – With Le Domaine Dampt Frères
The estate of the Dampt brothers, located between Chablis and Tonnerre in the Yonne, offers, among other things, a beautiful palette of wines from the three valleys of the Yonne.
From the valley of the Armançon, the Tonnere Burgundy and the Epineuil Burgundy will sharpen one’s taste buds at aperitif time. From the Yonne valley, Emmanuel and Eric propose an Irancy village wine.
Following along the Serein valley, a little Chablis born on the plateaus, as well as the Chablis from the slopes and to crown the lot, five Chablis Premier cru “Beauroy”, “Les Fourneaux”, “Vaucoupin”, “Mont de milieu”, “Fourchaume”, as well as two rare Chablis Grand cru “Bougros” which possesses a particularly sharpened minerality, and “Les Preuses” with a chalkier structure.
Eric and Emmanuel Dampt have been working their vines in a “reasoned struggle” since the creation of the estate in the 1980s and say they wish to pass on their knowledge and the love of their terroir to future generations.
