TONNERRE, CHEVALIER D'EON, BLANC DE BOURGOGNE 2012
DOMAINE DAMPT, COLLAN, YONNE, CÔTE D'OR, BURGUNDY, FRANCE
Pale gold with an instant fresh grassy sweetness coming through. Light and floral with vanilla overtones and the familiar silky smooth, almost nectar finish. The overall taste is fresh and persistent and should be drunk young. The Tonnerois soil is excellent for vines, combining a good exposure to light and sun with appropriate sloped hillsides and chalky stoney structure, enabling the vines to scramble deep into the soil. Just outside the Chablis district, the Dampt family have owned this estate for generations and are multi-award winning vignerons.
