Tribut’s wines are immediately appealing, crisp and lively, with lovely fruit, lemony aromas, spicy apple flavors, good balance, with a silky finish. His A.O.C. Chablis is a point of reference for the appellation, while his premier cru wine is Chardonnay with all its complexity and toasty, citrusy flavors in harmony.
88-91pts Burghound– 2018 vintage
A fresh and notably ripe nose still manages to convey reasonably good typicity on the mix of white and yellow orchard fruit scents. The rich and attractively textured medium weight flavors possess good punch and persistence where a note of salinity helps to add a sense of lift.
88-91pts Wine Advocate– 2018 vintage
The Tribut family’s 2018 Chablis Village was showing well, displaying attractive aromas of citrus fruit, white flowers and toasted almonds. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, with good structuring extract and lively acids, concluding with a chalky finish.
It had only been racked to barrel a month before I tasted it, so it’s early days to make a definitive pronouncement, but it would appear to be one of the vintage’s success stories.
