Domaine Bertrand Ambroise
Cuvée: Pinot Noir
Producer: Bertrand Ambroise http://www.ambroise.com/
Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
The domaine of Bertrand Ambroise was established in the late 18th century in the village of Prémeaux-Prissey, just south of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Today the estate has expanded to 42 acres which are worked diligently by Bertrand and his family.
Bertrand produces some of the finest examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundy. He often works with 10%-30% lower yields than are allowed. His genuine passion only to produce wines from absolutely ripe grapes demands a severe green harvest and an additional inspection or sorting of the fruit prior to fermentation. All of this detail work has created a worldwide demand for his wines.
The style of Bertrand’s wines can be characterized as ripe, deeply extracted, full bodied wines. This Bourgogne bottling is vinified 2/3 in tank while the remainder is completed in 2 and 3 year old barrels to add dimension.
