The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy is more closed on the nose, although there are already attractive chalk and flint scents that emerge with moderate aeration. The palate is vibrant and tense: a crisp line of acidity threaded through the ripe citrus fruits. It demonstrates better weight on the finish than the 2012. This is as good a Beauroy as you will find.
90-92 (Aug 2014)

(from a 1.8 ha parcel in Beauroy proper and Côte de Troëmes). This too is agreeably expressive with its sea water and dried yellow fruit aromas that flirt with the exotic. The impressively rich and opulent medium weight flavors possess a suave mouth feel before culminating in a punchy and notably saline close. Good stuff. 2018+
89-92

Pale bright yellow. Lovely citrus lift to the aromas of pink grapefruit, minerals and white truffle. Sweet, creamy and cleanly made; supple but not exotic. Shows less nerve and austerity than the young 2014 but this broad, concentrated wine nonetheless finishes with surprising lemony precision and lift.
91/100

Laurent Tribut is married to Vincent Dauvissat's sister, Marie Clotilde. When he started he made his wines in the Dauvissat cellar in Chablis, but now this small family-run domaine is based in Poinchy just outside the city limits of Chablis. You could not hope to meet a more charming and mild-mannered man as Laurent. He is a quiet genius, making some of the purest and most wonderful wines in the appellation. With just 6 hectares the quantities are small - but the quality of all his cuvées is extraordinary. Pure, powerfully driven, classically shaped there is more than a passing similarity to the wines of his brother-in-law the head-line grabbing Vincent Dauvissat. Buyers will enjoy these super wines with some time in bottle too - they have a great ability to age and patience will pay off, we recently tasted the 1er Cru Cote de Lechet 2004 with Laurent in his cellar and it was bright, young and full of vigour - more than ten years on. This is brilliant, classic Chablis made by a quiet maestro.
