Maison Ambroise is based in the small village of Premeaux-Prissey just south of the Côtes de Nuits town of Nuits-St-Georges. Bertrand Ambroise, the owner, took it over in 1987 and now runs things with his son François and daughter Ludivine.
They have 21 hectares in total and most of their wines are from Côte de Nuits appellations. Since 2013, when they achieved Ecocert certification, all their vineyards have been farmed organically and this is a cornerstone of the sustainable approach to their viticulture. Bertrand uses a good proportion of new oak in the domaine's winemaking and big, bold flavours are one of their trademarks. Their whites make ideal early drinking wines whereas the reds are capable of ageing well and developing a fine complexity along the way.
