2019 Nuits-Saint-Georges, ‘Vieilles Vignes’ Domaine Bertrand Ambroise – En Primeur is now available to purchase. Please click here to email us your wish-list at [email protected].
Bertrand and Martine Ambroise head up a 21-hectare domaine with much of the work now done by their son François and daughter Ludivine. The wines are well-known for their ability to age but François has introduced additional freshness and elegance into the wines without losing any of their traditional depth and concentration. In 2019, the domaine harvested relatively late, benefitting from the welcome mid-September rain. The pinot noir was destemmed as usual and the wines were aged in oak for between 12 and 18 months.
“This is 1er Cru quality, unsurprising since it comes from three plots of 70-year-old vines just below premier cru Les Saint Georges. Dense and backward but with a core of intense, concentrated fruit, this requires patience but will age magnificently.”
