Chablis Laid Bare:

When Dauvissat's Vaillons hits the mark, it's an amazing bottle of Chablis.

It might not be the grandest expression, but its mineral focus is really thrilling.

A Perennial Overachiever:
2018 Tribut Chablis

When it comes to classic Chablis AC, Tribut is one of the most important names to know.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:

"A classic tightly coiled La Forest that is clearly built-to-age."
2017 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

This is a don't miss vintage of Forest.

In Dauvissat's hands, Forest brims with notes of saline, crushed rocks, sea-breeze minerality, and bright citrus fruits.

2016 & 2017 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

I'll make this quick. Anytime that we offer Tribut, we brace ourselves for a quick sell out. Tribut's wines have long been aggressively hunted down by those in the know. If they haven't quite achieved the status that they deserve, it's because they tend to disappear from the market.

"A gorgeous, beguiling wine... "
2017 Moreau-Naudet Chablis 1er Cru Forêts

Moreau-Naudet is producing some of the most exciting wines coming out of Chablis. In 2017, they reached a high-water mark. Their 2017s represent a break out vintage for one of Chablis' top talents. They nailed the vintage. 

"A wonderfully complete wine that impresses for its exceptional balance"
- 2017 Moreau-Naudet Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

We were not prepared for the blazing greatness of the 2017 Moreau-Naudet collection. That's saying a lot. We have been beating the drum for Moreau-Naudet for the past five years. Still, the dazzling quality of the 2017s shocked us. This is a break out vintage that places them among the best of Chablis.

“Outstanding complexity” - Burghound

If you're after classic, mineral-drenched Chablis, Tribut is one of the most important names to know.

"Offers very fine quality for its level"
- 2017 Tribut Chablis

I'm going to make this very quick. Anytime that we offer Tribut we have to allocate the wines. Tribut made gorgeous 2017s. They have the richness and presence of the vintage with an intense salty, Chablisienne minerality coursing through it.

Purity In Chablis - Rare:
2017 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Tribut's Chablis rarely sees the light of day. Today's offer is a case in point. There are only two other listings for Tribut's 2017 Beauroy in the U.S. It's also worth pointing out that we're offering the Beauroy at the lowest price around. 

Chablis Classicism for a Song:
2017 Picq Chablis Dessus la Carrière

Dessus la Carrière comes from two lieu-dits that are above an old limestone quarry. When you taste the wine, it's difficult not to think about it. The 2017 Dessus la Carrière delivers textbook Chablis minerality in a very emphatic way.

This explosive effort is almost aggressively saline"
2011 Dauvissat Chablis Les Clos

Simply said, Dauvissat's 2011s are stunning. The wines are above all defined by their purity and their minerality. 

Rare Tribut Chablis:
2016 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy & Côte de Léchet

For years, Tribut's wines have been an insider's secret, snapped up by collectors before they saw the light of day. Slowly word has gotten out (the wines are too compelling to remain a secret), but that's only made finding the wines more difficult. In 2016, the dramatically reduced yields made a tough situation into something painful. Production was down by 50% or more.

"Impeccable Balance" - 2010 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru Séchet

Séchet is for purists. It’s a bottling that boasts deep cut and a blatant expression of saline minerality. There’s a directness and elegance to Séchet that always impresses us.

"Terrific" -Burghound
2010 Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru La Forest

Dauvissat's 2010s are simply brilliant. The 2010 vintage in Chablis is really impressive. Even in this context, Dauvissat is a standout. They may very likely be the wines of the vintage. 

Chablis Rarity
2016 Tribut Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy

Laurent Tribut makes some of the most sought after and under the radar Chablis. For years, Tribut's wines have been an insider's secret, snapped up by collectors before they saw the light of day.
