Laurent Tribut Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2020


Sold Out

“The 2020 Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy bursts from the glass with aromas of apricot, peach and citrus mingled with fresh bread, toasted almonds and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, ample but precise, with tangy acids and a saline finish, it’s another lovely wine from the Tribut family. 92-94 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.”
