Veuve Ambal, Cremant de Bourgogne, Brut Cuvee Tradition NV - August 2021 Decanter review
Veuve Ambal has 230 hectares of vineyards in Burgundy and is one of the most prestigious wineries in the region. All of the company's domaines are managed using sustainable methods. The use of specific cultivation techniques aims to reduce the use of treatments by optimising their position and efficiency. This approach is an indication of Veuve Ambal's desire to reduce its impact on nature. These environmental concerns are at the core of the company's ethos, from the vineyards right up to the vinification of the wines.
The domaines are located in 6 different terroirs. This diversity brings richness and aromatic complexity to the wines produced.
Comes from 25-year old vines on clay and limestone soil. All the fruit is harvested by hand to ensure the high quality that this producer is known for.
Upon reception of harvests, thanks to pneumatic presses, slow pressing is carried out. Only the first presses of the highest-quality batches are selected for the final blend. A malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks is also conducted, followed by second (methode traditionelle) fermentation and ageing. The second fermentation, which takes place inside the bottle, is generated by the addition of yeasts and sugar. The wines are then aged on their lees between 12 and 18 months.
Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Noir 40%, Gamay 10% and Aligote 10%.
Burgundian fizz, full of exotic fruit, balanced by a fresh wash of citrus; on the nose, the perfume of white flowers and a warm scent of fresh-baked pastries.
