Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2016 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Posted by Ian McFadden

Anytime that I see Tribut's 2016 Beauroy for sale, I buy it.

Tribut made, quite possibly, the Chablis of the vintage. 

Finding Tribut in quantity is always difficult, but it's even worse in 2016. Production was down by 50% or more. 

The 2016 Beauroy is deeply concentrated with a mineral-laden and cool fruit profile. There's a textural imprint of stony minerality and a saline streak. The wine is further animated by currents of citrus.

As we've said in the past, it's very easy to detect a kinship with the wines of Dauvissat. In Tribut, you encounter a similar classically structured and deeply complex Chablis minerality.

This isn't accidental. Laurent Tribut married Marie-Clotilde Dauvissat, the daughter of René Dauvissat. The Dauvissats purchased choice parcels to give to their children to become winemakers, which is the land Laurent and Marie-Clotilde farm, and opened up their cellar to them.

At $49.95 per bottle, this is one of the great deals in Chablis. It's no surprise that Beauroy sells out quickly whenever we have the opportunity to offer it. 

To order, email or call the store at (212) 980-9463.
