Wonderfully executed, textbook Chablis. Fermentation in cuve; mix of cuve and neutral oak elevage. A wonderful example that speaks to the appellation. Tribut is a protégé of Dauvissat and I think that having studied under that kind of expertise definitely shows here. Full of verve and crackling energy while also showing a some richness and a bit fuller body from the warm vintage. Definitely would be best in a few more years but still a pleasure to drink now.

- Color: medium (-) straw-gold hue
- Nose: just-ripe yellow apple, ripe starfruit, tons of saline oyster shell quality and crushed chalk minerality, lemon pulp, Parmigiano cheese rind leesiness, heavy cream character from malo, some slight fennel spice and a touch of white florals
- Palate: ripe starfruit, lemon pulp, crushed oyster shell salinity, Parmigiano rind leesiness, heavy cream, and a slight fennel note
- Acid: high
- RS: bone dry
- Alcohol: medium (+), not hot or noticeable
- Body: medium (-)/medium, with an oily texture from elevage on lees and malolactic as well

The somm said this producer was connected to Vincent Dauvissat somehow. Notes of florals and a hint of seashell but the warmer vintage giving a riper rendition of Chablis on the palate - Saline and Citrusy. Low acid and reasonable length. A glass of this was a great match with 6 Clyde River oysters from south coast of NSW.

Chablis to me is an all day enjoy. Full great heavenous. Citrus abounds. It's why we do what we do.

Monthly Wine Group Gathering - Plenty of citrus, minerality, green apples, and wet rocks with some lovely acidity.

Today's Poolside Pick - Chillin' with Chablis, brought to us by Laurent Tribut 💯 Pears, green apples, honey, lemon custard, and rain-drenched slate. This is a solid selection by a high quality producer.
