This had just been bottled and yet is still hugely expressive. Compared to the Laurent Tribut Chablis there is more breadth and sleekness here. The fruit is riper, more apple and pear which leads seamlessly to a good saline finish with oyster shell and nice pithy lemon. The fruit all comes from a specific parcel that she bought near Beauroy, very steep but just round the corner from the 1er Cru site.L&S(Oct 2018)

Notes of white orchard fruit confit, sea breeze and a hint of quinine serve as a pretty introduction to the impressively rich, indeed even lavish, medium-bodied flavors that possess a seductive mouth feel along with very fine depth and persistence on the saline-imbued finale. Good stuff for its level and worth checking out. 2021+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Oct 2018)
The 2017 Chablis from Solange Tribut is very promising, wafting from the glass with expressive aromas of white flowers, lemon oil, almond paste and subtle struck match. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, bright and glossy, with a lovely core of ripe fruit underpinned by tangy acids, concluding with a long finish. It's an excellent Chablis AOC in the making and should be well worth seeking out in bottle. Rating: 90-92 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Aug 2018)
The 2017 Chablis, which comes from vines located towards Beauroy and made under Laurent Tribut's daughter's name, has a very pure and charming bouquet with light yellow flower and orange blossom scents. The palate is well balanced, light on its toes, fresh with a light saline influence towards the finish. If this indicates the quality of the wines following Laurent's retirement, then everything bodes well. Drinking range: 2019 - 2024 Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Aug 2018)
Domaine Solange Tribut
Solange Tribut is the daughter of Laurent Tribut, whose excellent Chablis we have sold successfully for years, and the niece of the highly regarded Vincent Dauvissat. The family tradition for expressive yet pure Chablis is safe in her hands. Her wines are very classically shaped. Light on their toes - pithy with lovely citrus highs and great clean lines. Super value wines with great heritage.

BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ
OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.
PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.
DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.
DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.
PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
