Bourgogne Aligoté is quite a delicious example of this variety, which seems to be making a come back lately. The nose is lovely and delicate, the palate is citrusy and vividly fresh, with its edges soften by an overall impression of ripeness. Brilliant effort with more texture than most you’ll come across.
Maison Ambroise is a long established, small négociant house, who operates on 21 hectares of their own vineyards and purchase grapes from another 3. They own vines in Prémeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Ladoix, Meursault, the hill of Corton, Vosne-Romanée (with some Grand Cru Echezeaux!), Gevrey-Chambertin, Vougeot, Beaune and as far as Saint-Romain. As always with similarly parcelled estates in Burgundy, logistic is key.
Harvested manually, neither filtered nor fined, the wines are classic and expressive with distinct terroir-influenced personalities.
