2018 Laurent Tribut Côte de Léchet Chablis Premier Cru
Laurent Tribut was apprenticed to his brother-in-law Vincent Dauvissat for over 10 years before spreading his wings. His Chablis surpass many 1° Crus. All of Tribut's wines are luscious yet finely defined and have a very complex and long finish. Beautiful wines! This young domain already belongs to the top of Chablis.
The chardonnay grapes come from the Premier Cru vineyards of the Côte de Léchet. Spontaneous and temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks until malolactic fermentation occurs. This is followed by maturation in wooden barrels
Notes of white flowers, apples, oyster shells and wet stones introduce the 2018 Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchet, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and impressively sharp wine in this warm vintage, with plenty of chalky extract and a mineral finish. At this early stage, the Côte de Léchet seems to be one of the main cru highlights of the vintage. The Laurent Tribut comes from a beautifully balanced year 2018. Recommended and it is the ideal companion for oysters.
