Red Burgundy that is both good and does not break the bank can be difficult to find. Maison Ambroise is one place to look. We visited the house this spring on one of our wine tours and tasted their selection, starting with the “plain” Bourgogne Rouge, a wine that offers a good pinot noir character with red berries and balanced oak. The wine is light-weight but structured with good acidity and tannin. Good value at around 16 euro.
Overall, Maison Ambroise makes very good wines. It is a family company that keeps a fairly low profile but works ambitiously. The property has been certified ecologically since 2013. Bertrand Ambroise became responsible for the property in 1987 and is now working with his children. They have more than 20 hectares of vineyards scattered over as many appellations, both in Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits.
