2014 Domaine Laurent Tribut
Less pronounced but elegant lemon citrus, mineral nose, palate is crisp and bright, full acid attack, citrus, lemon, stones and mineral, quite sleek pure decent length (tasted from barrel). L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A ripe and expressive nose features notes of yellow orchard fruit that is liberally laced with citrus and classic Chablis elements. The attractively rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess good punch as the lemon-tinged acidity keeps the balance on the clean and agreeably dry finale. This terrific effort should drink well both young and with a few years of cellar time. Highly recommended for a villages level Chablis. 2020+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2017)
Pale yellow. Lemon, menthol and a note of oyster-shell austerity on the nose. Rich but penetrating, showing excellent density and inner-mouth precision. A very sappy, fresh village wine with excellent balance and a grapefruity, stony finish. Rating: 89-91 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Aug 2015)
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 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.
