Domaines ‘La Grande Cote’ and ‘La Vigne au Roy’ Cremant de Bourgogne

10-Apr-2017
Veuve Ambal is a family business established in 1898 specialising in the production of Cremant de Bourgogne. Owning over 250 ha of vineyards in Burgundy, the company operates six individual domaines and make wines to express the different terroirs. Here I review two wines; the Domaine de La Grande Cote in the Chatillonnais to the north, near Champagne, with 41 ha, 26 ha to Pinot Noir. 14 ha to Chardonnay and 1 ha to Aligote on hard limestone soil. There is also Domaine La Vigne au Roy, in the Hautes-Cotes de Buits, with 36 ha, 18 ha to Pinot Noir, 13 ha to Chardonnay, and 5 ha of Aligote on the Bevy hillside. This domaine was instrumental in the revival of the Cremant style. Here, I review the wines from these two domaines. The wines are distributed in New Zealand by Paul Wai Poi of CPP Wines, Tel: 09 360-2854
