Daniel Dampt 'Cote de Lechet' Chablis Premier Cru 2006

Chablis is a special region for me in the world of wine. Good prices and yet outstanding flavour, complexity and depth can be found consistently here, and 2006 was a fantastic year.

The nose on this Dampt suggested pineapple and fresh citrus. The palate expanded dramatically to introduce apricot, pineapple, pear, banana and dried coconut. This wine had such beautiful viscosity while also maintaining a texture that remained light on the tongue. Full bodied, but not oaky, this paired superbly with affidelice cheese (washed in Chablis) from Burgundy.

Excellent (verging on Excellent+)
$38 at Marquis
