2018 LAURENT TRIBUT CHABLIS

Crisp, Characterful & Charming

 

Tribut’s wines are exceptional and electric, but still fly under the radar due to their scarcity. This domaine is tiny – their total holdings of 7 hectares are the size of some other growers’ single vineyards!

If you’ve noticed some label similarity with the famed Dauvissat, they’re linked through DNA - Laurent Tribut married Marie-Clotilde Dauvissat and they inherited prized Village and Premier Cru vineyards from her father, René Dauvissat.

Today the estate is in the hands of their three children; Solange, Gabriel and Adéline. They continue the hard work of organic philosophies. In the cellar, old oak is employed for élevage, adding a welcomed curve to these chiselled and mineral driven wines.   It is hard not to compare them with Dauvissat, they both share depth and density.  This bodes well for long lives ahead!

Our allocation of these scarce wines is very small, so if you’d like to buy the Premier Cru wines we’re selling them as a four pack

  • 2 x 2018 Village AC @ $95/btl = $190
  • 1 x 2018 Beauroy Premier Cru @ $124
  • 1 x 2018 Cote du Lechet Premier Cru @ $124

Less 10% discount

Total $395 (SOLD OUT)

TO ORDER: The Tribut Packs have sold out, but we still have bottles of 2018 Beauroy Premier Cru and 2018 Village AC please email us.

 

2018 Vintage: While time is generally needed to coax out their true personalities, the precocious nature of the 2018 vintage makes them outright delicious in their youth. But if you can resist opening them, you’ll be rewarded with waxy and honeyed tones.

 

2018 Chablis AC
Offer $86 (Retail $95)
‘…A fresh and notably ripe nose still manages to convey reasonably good typicity on the mix of white and yellow orchard fruit scents. The rich and attractively textured medium weight flavors possess good punch and persistence where a note of salinity helps to add a sense of lift.’ Burghound Issue 76

 

2018 Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy (included in 4 pack, see above)
‘…touch of exotic fruit in the form of white peach, apricot and melon nuances on the petrol-infused nose. The caressing and quite rounded medium bodied flavours also possess a refreshing salinity on the solidly persistent and complex finale.’ Burghound Issue 76

 

2018 Chablis Premier Cru Côte du Léchet (included in 4 pack, see above)
‘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 flavours that deliver good if not truly distinguished depth and persistence on the balanced finale.’ Burghound Issue 76

 

TO ORDER: Please email us with your wish-list and we’ll be in touch to confirm your order.

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.”
― Ernest Hemingway
