MAISON AMBROISE, Prémeaux-Prissey Certified organic
Bertrand Ambroise, recently joined by his son Francois and daughter Ludivine operate on 21 hectares and purchase grapes from another 3. Their vineyards were converted to organic viticulture and they received their certification in 2013. From manually harvested grapes, neither filtered nor fined, the wines are classic Burgundy with distinct terroir-influenced personalities. Maison Ambroise produce 24 cuvees that are assembled from 170 separate plots of vines

“Well, the wines were very strong – like my father. Since my brother and I came to the domaine in 2009, and as my father collects grandchildren, he is getting softer and rounder, so the wines are also rounder! Note also that 10 years ago we were not organic, the weather was different and the barrels we now use are different…”Vosne-Romanée 'Aux Damaudes' comes from 60 year-old vines, from a vineyard closed to NSG 1er Cru ‘Damodes’.
