Maturity:
Drink Up
ABV:
13%
Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2017 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru did not really cohere on the nose and seemed just a little acetic, although it is very faint. The palate is bitter and rather hard. A Chablis that does not really flow and feels too lean on the finish. A bit of TCA here? Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting in Savigny-lès-Beaune.

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.
