Aromas of chalk, sliced lemons and green apples. Fennel and hints of hay, too. Beautiful, slightly waxy texture with a medium body and sparkly acidity. Oyster-shell undertones. So easy to drink. Rating: 92-92 James Suckling, (Apr 2017)

(Tribut bottled his 2013s in April of 2015): Ripe apricot, orange and pineapple on the nose. A fat, sweet fruit bomb in the mouth, conveying an impression of soft acidity but avoiding coming off as warm or bitter on the end. An excellent example of very ripe Chablis: not necessarily for purists but with enough tension to give it life. Drinking range: 2015 - 2020 Rating: 89-89 Stephen Tanzer, 2015)

I like the purity of the expressive nose as it’s ripe but not exotic with yellow orchard fruit and soft iodine nuances. There is a lush and seductive mouth feel to the very rounded middle weight flavors that terminate in a suave yet refreshing finish. A solid villages that should drink well young. 2016+ Rating: 87-89 Allen Meadows, 2015)

The 2013 Chablis has a strict, stony bouquet, the palate possesses a core of orange and tangerine, and the finish is slightly peppery. This should be better than the 2012 after release, but I feel it may deserve another few months in bottle to allow it time to settle. Rating: 86-88 Neal Martin, 2014)

Domaine Laurent Tribut

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. 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 classical wines in the appellation.

This year it was great to get to know three (Solange, Adeline and Gabriel) of Laurent's four children who all now work with him. With his guidance the future here looks very bright. 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 Côte de Léchet 2004 with Laurent in his cellar and it was bright, young and full of vigour - nearly 15 years on. This is brilliant, classic Chablis made by a quiet maestro.
