2015 1er Cru Côte de Léchet Domaine Laurent Tribut
|Vineyard||Côte de Léchet|
From barrel and yet to finish its malo - this is still delicious to taste, if yet a little more melding together is needed. Lovely notes apple cobbler on the attack gain more lift and brightness, and give a super counterpoint to the tell-tale Lechet minerality. This is full of promise, and will be great - all in balance, but not yet all in perfect place. L&S (Jan 2017)
*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 wonderfully fresh nose combines notes of various citrus elements with those of white flower, quinine and a hint of algae. There is a caressing mouth feel to the delicious, round and rich flavors that possess notably better complexity on the lingering finale where a hint of bitter lemon appears. 2019+ Rating: 88-91 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 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.
