Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
13 %

Notes

Classic in style and very “Tribut” in style but a less uncompromising than the linear villages. There is density, body and flesh here filling out the citrus and mineral notes. Amples but with crisp acidity, notes of butter, citrus zest and stones.

Notes
The 2017 Chablis Beauroy 1er Cru has a very refined bouquet with yellow flowers, a hint of quince and a touch of oyster shell percolating through with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, crisp and taut with a tang saline finish that brims over with energy. Classic Chablis from start to finish.

Laurent Tribut

Laurent Tribut

The Tributs are a quiet and unassuming couple who live in the village of Poinchy where they make minute quantities of exquisite Chablis. This is a veritable small family business that sees Laurent working in his 5 hectares of vines and making the wine (with his young daughter who is studying viticulture in Beaune soon to join him) while his wife, Marie-Clotilde, looks after business matters. Like his brother-in-law, Vincent Dauvissat, Laurent believes in ageing his wines in oak barrels (7 to 8 years old) after fermentation in steel cuvees. The provenance of the oak is mixed (Allier, Vosges, Chatillons) which adds complexity to his mineral yet unctous wines. These are authentic, artisan Chablis that demand time, even the Chablis Village can take a couple of years to be at its best.
