Chablis 1er Cru ‘Beauroy’ Laurent Tribut 2015
Laurent Tribut, Chablis
Laurent Tribut is following the same principles as Vincent Dauvissat, his brother-in-law, and the style is very similar. Very unassuming, Laurent makes tight, sometimes austere wines, from his tiny 5ha plot of vines, that need two or three years before showing their true potential.
Pale bright yellow. Lovely citrus lift to the aromas of pink grapefruit, minerals and white truffle. Sweet, creamy and cleanly made; supple but not exotic. Shows less nerve and austerity than the young 2014 but this broad, concentrated wine nonetheless finishes with surprising lemony precision and lift.
