Buy Ambroise Nuit St Georges Vielles Vignes 2006****
This Nuits Saint Georges Vieilles Vignes bursts forth with peppery and spicy cherries. This impressive wine is concentrated, muscular and very well-structured!
Wine Advocate 90 points - From vines of 65 years and older in parcels situated below Les St.-Georges and Cailles ? and aged in 70% new barrels (as opposed to the 40% of Ambroise’s ””regular”” village Nuits) ? the 2006 Nuits St.-Georges Vieilles Vignes offers alluring aromas and deep, sweet ripeness of black raspberry and cassis, wreathed in smoke and underlain with crushed stone. Palpably dense and with quite fine-grained tannin, it finishes with clean, vibrant fruit that is admirably transparent to fascinating mineral and raw carnal nuances, and unencumbered by any overt oakiness. It should have 6-8 year potential. (Dec 2009)

The domaine of Bertrand Ambroise was established in the late 18th century in the village of Premeaux-Prissey, just south of Nuits-Saint Georges. Today the estate has expanded to 42 acres which are worked diligently by Bertrand and his family. Bertrand produces some of the finest examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in Burgundy. He often works with 10%-30% lower yields than are allowed. His genuine passion only to produce wines from absolutely ripe grapes demands a severe green harvest and an additional inspection or sorting of the fruit prior to fermentation. All of this detail work has created a worldwide demand for his wines. The style of Bertrandís wines can be characterized as ripe, deeply extracted, full bodied, structured Pinot Noirs with clean fruit flavors being the focus.
