In a nutshell:
A ripe and mature Premier Cru Côte de Nuits Burgundy.
Bertrand Ambroise always produces modern, fruit-forward and richer styles of wines, which bodes well as this vintage was not without its challenges. This is a very good wine full stop, and one of the better of the 2012 Nuits-St-Georges. The grapes are from the small premier cru vineyard of 'Rue de Chaux' and only a few barrels are made. It's medium-bodied with flavours of ripe red berry fruit, cedar and vanilla notes, hints of black pepper and a long, warming length.
When to drink:
Ideal with well hung game.
