When Laurent Tribut married Marie-Clotilde Dauvissat, the daughter of René Dauvissat, he joined the family´s wine-making tradition. Long ago the Dauvissat´s had purchased excellent A.O.C. Chablis vineyards adjoining their own premier cru, to give their children the opportunity to become viticulturalists. Laurent, Marie-Clotilde, and their children live only a few miles from René Dauvissat, in a large, restored farmhouse, with vineyards behind the property. Laurent is a good-natured man whose love of the vineyards is expressed in careful viticulture, using the minimum application of fertilizers and phytosanitary treatments.
