From barrel this is tasting very fine already. More lifted more sparky. Lovely lifted fruit is the star of the show here. Intense taste of hard pear fruit and a zip of crisp apple skin dominates the more subtle mineral tones - which are somewhat in the background for now but build the picture that is so classically Chablis in feel and drive. Needs a moment in bottle but this will be such fun to drink. L&S (Nov 2016)

Laurent Tribut is related to both the Dauvissat and Raveneau families and his wines belong in that exalted company. This saline, green tinged Premier Cru is a blend of six parcels in a comparatively warm site. Taut and focused, with barely a whisper of oak and layers of citrus, fresh mushroom and umami notes.

(from a 1.8 ha parcel that is divided roughly 50/50 between Beauroy proper and Côte de Troëmes). There is a mild hint of exotic fruit character to the fresh nose that exhibits slightly better Chablis typicity that also suffuses the delicious and subtly mineral-inflected flavors, all wrapped in a saline and refreshing finale. 2019+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2017)
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.
