How About an Organic Burgundy for the Best Price in USA?!?!
Maison Bertrand Ambroise Nuits-Saint-Georges 2010 is a well-balanced Pinot Noir with great provenance that is perfect with Halibut, Salmon, Chicken, Beef and Duck.
Like many premium Burgundies, this baby is drinking well right now, but can benefit from additional bottle aging for up to ten years.
The origin of Domaine Ambroise goes back to the 18th century. At that time, only a few plots were worked for several generations. It was in 1960 that the family then started to develop their vines and wines. In 1987, Bertrand Ambroise takes to the field. Passionate about the work of the vine and wine lovers, he developed the area that has now reached about 17 hectares. They are a family passionate about wine and this is a real philosophy that is placed around the two varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Lovely purity and silky texture highlight this medium-bodied red, which is firm, with tight-grained tannins and a lingering aftertaste. This wine, opulent and very expressive, reflects the character of wines of the Cotes de Nuits. Attractive but full character, you will find red fruits and ripe fruits, a little bit sweet. Spicy touch show its youth. With time, you will find truffle and wood aromas, characteristic of aging.
Bertrand Ambroise called 2010 a "superb vintage that is easy to understand as the wines are classic but round and approachable plus the underlying terroir is really at the forefront. That's the good news. The bad news is that quantities were down 40%, which hurts, especially since 2011 wasn't much more abundant. I would describe the style of the 2010s as resembling either 2007 or 2002 but in both cases with more underlying material and with greater aging potential as well."
