Notes from Vineyard Brands:
"When Laurent Tribut married Marie-Clotilde Dauvissat, the daughter of René Dauvissat, he joined the family´s winemaking tradition. Long ago, the Dauvissats purchased excellent AOC Chablis vineyards adjoining their own premier crus to give their children the opportunity to become viticulturists. Laurent and Marie-Clotilde have used those vineyards to do just that. Together with their children, Laurent and MarieClotilde live only a few miles from Vincent Dauvissat, in a large, restored farmhouse with vineyards behind the property. Today, their daughter Solange has joined the family business as a talented winemaker in her own right. THE VINEYARDS The domaine consists of 12.5 acres of vineyards. In addition to eight acres of AOC Chablis, which is a superb parcel of kimmeridgian soil adjacent to Dauvissat´s own vineyards, Tribut owns the following premier cru vineyards: Chablis Beauroy (2.5 acres), Chablis Montmains (0.5 acres in the Fôrets lieu-dit), and Chablis Côte de Léchet (1.25 acres). He uses the minimum application of fertilizers and phytosanitary treatments possible. Yields are kept to 3.7 tons per acre, and harvest is completely done by hand."
