Joanna Simon's Wine of the Week

Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys 2008 - Domaine Vincent Dampt


"Stellar Premier Cru Chablis from Vincent, son of Daniel and grandson of Jean Defaix, which is a good start in Chablis life if ever there was one. Vincent has also worked with Olivier Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet and done a stint in Marlborough, New Zealand. The nose is quintessence of Chablis with nutty, sour-cream richness set against stony minerality and tingling freshness. The palate is creamy and textured, with ripe fruit - hints of apricot and apple - and intense, penetrating, lime-like acidity. Great length and presence. 13% abv. Drink from until 2018."
