Laurent Tribut Chablis 2020


Sold Out

“The 2020 Chablis Village offers up aromas of sweet orchard fruit, fresh bread, citrus oil and blanched almonds. Medium-bright and precise, with a fleshy core of fruit and a saline finish, it’s very promising. 90-92 points

Laurent Tribut’s three daughters—Solange, Adéline, and Gabriel—are well-ensconced at this important eight-hectare domaine; and their 2020s, which had just been racked to barrel after their fermentation in tank, bear all the hallmarks of a lovely vintage, somewhat reminiscent at this early stage of the Tributs’ 2017s. As I’ve written before, moderate yields, hand-harvesting at full maturity, fermentation in enameled steel and élevage in used wood on the lees are the rudiments of the approach here—an approach familiar to followers of the wines of Laurent Tribut’s brother-in-law, Vincent Dauvissat, in whose cellars Tribut’s wines were once produced. Farming is de facto organic but not certified as such. And none of that seems to have changed with the new generation at the helm.”
