2017 Domaine Laurent Tribut

Grapes Chardonnay
Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Chablis
ABV 12.5%

Tasted from the barrel this is beautifully bright, fresh and clean. There is an intensely savoury whiff of iodine and lovely crunched-up shells. A saline undercurrent runs through and is softened by some lovely fruit notes of crisp pear, some pithy lemon and a spray of white flowers. Great classic pure Chablis, so impressive for a 'Village' wine. Complex and intense, yet restrained for now - has everything you could hope for in 'proper' Chablis. L&S (Oct 2018)

There is excellent Chablis typicity to the nose that combines notes of pear and apple with those of quinine, iodine and algae. The succulent, round and pliant medium-bodied flavors possess a satiny mouth feel before concluding in a saline, dry and sneaky long finish. This offers very fine quality for its level and is worth a look. 2021+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, 2018)

Very flinty lemons and piercing citrus fruit here. Plenty of richness and power with refined essence-like citrus punch. A long finish. Very dry and even. Drink now or hold. Rating: 92-93 James Suckling, 2018)

The 2017 Chablis Villages is excellent, wafting from the glass with notes of almond paste, crisp white peach, ripe citrus peel and spring flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a tangy line of acidity to counterbalance its generous core of fruit and a tense, chalky finish. At this early stage, it appears to be a touch more tensile and acid-driven than the corresponding wine from Solange Tribut, though that could simply be a function of the barrels I tasted. As readers likely know, the bulk of this cuvée derives from the part of Fôrets classified as Chablis AOC. Rating: 90-92 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Aug 2018)

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 than Laurent. He is a quiet genius, making some of the purest and most classical wines in the appellation.

Three (Solange, Adeline and Gabriel) of Laurent's four children 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 long-lived 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.
