2018 1er Cru Côte de Léchet Domaine Laurent Tribut
|Vineyard||Côte de Léchet|
Pretty nose, just generous enough. Enticing. Lovely lemony brightness up front on the palate. Good grip and mineral hold. again so classical. This is clever there is more limestone in the soil here than their Beauroy plot - and it is clear on the palate. Having just tasted Beauroy - this is even more focused, more pure lines and that suedey, grippy texture. Nice energy though - fresh acidity pushes to the finish. L&S (Nov 2019)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
(from a .8 ha parcel). The hallmark citrus nuances are present on the white-fleshed fruit, quinine and sea breeze-inflected aromas. I very much like the intensity of the stony and delicious middle weight flavors that deliver good if not truly distinguished depth and persistence on the balanced finale.

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.
