We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome winemaker Bertrand Ambroise (above right, with his son François) who will be pouring wines by his family’s estate Maison Ambroise in Premeaux-Prissey, a small village near Nuits-Saint-Georges. His wine’s will be featured at the Friday evening marquee dinner at Frasca (SOLD OUT) and at our Sunday seminar at noon.
Of course, his wines will also be poured at the Grand Tasting on Sunday afternoon and he’ll be making an appearance at the Paulée lunch (SOLD OUT).
A note on Maison Ambroise:
The origin of the domaine goes back to the 18th century. In this period, only some small parcels were worked during several generations. It took 300 years for the Ambroise family to settle down in Premeaux-Prissey, a small village near Nuits-Saint-Georges in the heart of the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits appellation where the best wines produced in the village can bear the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation. In 1987, Bertrand Ambroise took back the domaine. Fascinated by the work of the vines and an avid lover of wine, he developed the domaine which now includes approximately 52 acres.
Started in 2009 at the initiative of Francois (Bertrand’s son now working along his father in the vineyards and cellar) the organic certification has been granted in 2013 by Ecocert. The appellations covered by the domaine include both red and white wines.
