Purity In Chablis Revisited:
2017 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Posted by Ian McFadden

I jumped on this offer when I saw it. Tribut's 2017s are gorgeous and finding Beauroy in quantity is extremely difficult.

Just to drive this home, I'll mention that there is only one other listing in the country for the 2017 Beauroy. 

Tribut's 2017s offer an incredible completeness. They have presence and an intense salty, Chablisienne minerality coursing through them. 

Today, I'm happy to have a second opportunity to offer Tribut's 2017 Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy for $54.95 per bottle. 

The story here is that 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.

It's very easy to detect a kinship with the wines of Dauvissat. In Tribut, you encounter a similar classically structured, deeply complex Chablis minerality, the same intense, sweeping notes of stone fruits, flowers, and minerals.

The 2017 Beauroy is the genuine article, boasting oceanic notes and citrus. There's a beautiful refinement and focus to the wines. The total package is very compelling. 

Anytime we offer Tribut's wines, they sell out quickly. I'll wrap this up. The 2017 Beauroy is not to be missed. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best. 

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

Burghound "As is usually the case with Beauroy, there is a suggestion of the exotic present on the slightly riper aromas of white orchard fruit confit that is laced with hints of seashore and again algae. There is also a bit more volume and mid-palate richness to the opulent and seductively textured medium weight flavors that despite the lavish mouth feel culminate in a clean, markedly dry and almost salty finale. Note that this opulent effort should be approachable young but age well too."
