What was formerly Maison Bertrand Ambroise based in Premeaux, outside Nuits-St-Georges, has been rebranded by the current generation, Ludivine and François, as Domaine Ambroise Frère et Soeur. Bertrand works with his two children and together they have progressively converted the 21h/a estate to organics.

This chardonnay is grown in clay and silex soils around Premeaux-Prissey. Half the wine is fermented in used oak foudres, to add structure rather than flavour. The remainder is vinified in stainless steel. The wine is not fined and is very lightly filtered.

If you like Burgundian Chardonnay with just a kiss of oak, a purity of fruit and balanced acidity, this is the wine for you. It is defined by a steely backbone of freshness with the classic textural quality of well made Chardonnay. The palate is beautifully soft with a touch of buttery hazelnut.

Pair with creamy chicken casserole.

Burgundy, France

Burgundy (or Bourgogne in French) is small in size, the Côte d'Or has about 8000 hectares under vine, yet its influence is immense. It is home to some of the best known and most expensive wines in the world. Look in the right places and there is great quality and superb value to be found.

The two major grapes are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, though you can find small pockets of well-made Aligoté.

Chardonnay

One of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, sparkling Blanc de Blancs to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak.

Depending on how ripe the grapes get, the flavour ranges from crisp, clean citrus and green apple, to ripe peaches and tropical fruit. Notable Chardonnays can be found in France, California, Australia, England, and beyond.

Bertrand Ambroise, Maison Ambroise

Bertrand and Martine Ambroise have handed over much of the running of the estate to their children, François and Ludivine. Together, they have developed an organic philosophy, gaining certification in 2013. 

François vinifies the wines with less extraction so that whilst the wines retain the big, bold flavours for which the estate is well known they show greater charm and finesse.
