The wines of Chablis are made from one single varietal : Chardonnay. They are sub-divided into four appellations : Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru, Chablis Grand Cru.
These are identified by precisely delimited production zones, and are subject to strict production regulations.
Chablis wines are dry white wines which are characterized by their purity, crispness, sophistication and minerality. The Chardonnay varietal gives results in Chablis unlike anywhere else. It draws its personality and character from a subsoil that is 150 million years old, and ripens in ideal conditions, in a semi-continental climate, which allow it to attain a good balance between sugar levels and acidity.
After working closely with his father Daniel and brother Vincent at Domaine Daniel Dampt, Sébastien Dampt created is own Domaine in 2007.
The family has been making wine in Chablis for over 150 years. The Domaine is situated in the village of Milly to the west of Chablis and fifty percent of the holdings are in 1ers Crus.
In 2013, Sébastien Dampt boughts a concrete egg, to vinify a new 1er Cru in his range, this system is used to obtain more fatness on the wines and to make a micro oxygenation as a barrel (without oaky aromas)…
In 2017, he planted a new parcel of Petit Chablis, the estate currently counts 8,5 ha of vineyard.
Now 35 years old, I spent my childhood in the Chablis vineyards. This is how I acquired the passion for the profession of winegrower. My family has been a winegrower family for over 150 years, so it was thanks to her that I decided to study viticulture in Beaune.
At the end of my studies, I did various internships in France (Sancerre, Nuits St Georges …) as well as in Australia, in order to perfect my knowledge.
Back at Domaine Daniel Dampt in 2005, I then took over 7 hectares of vines and created Domaine Sébastien Dampt in 2007. Now the Domaine counts 8.5 ha of vines.
