Burgundy is perhaps the region of the wine world that is most difficult to find value in. So we get EXTREMELY excited when we find wines that taste like Premier Cru quality at nearly every day prices. Bertrand Ambroise has always been a reliable mid-range estate in Nuits-St-Georges, but since his son took over in 2015, we've been watching like a hawk. In 2020, we ended the year commenting that his 2017 Bourgogne Rouge VV was likely the greatest Bourgogne Rouge for the price that we had ever had. We just grabbed the remainder of what was left in the country of the following two wines out of New Jersey, and we couldn't be more stoked to have some drinking Burgundy around our own houses. The white is from a vineyard site planted at high altitude in the Haut-Côtes de Nuits, a region all of us should be paying attention to. Many top producers (Anne Gros, Meo-Camuzet, and more) have begun searching for top vineyard sites in these wind exposed, higher altitude hillsides to the west and above the Côte d'Or. This exposure guarantees fresh acidity even in warm vintages, and we find ourselves hunting for these wines in a way we didn't consider a decade ago. The white below has exceptional mid-palate density with vibrant acidity and perfectly poised ripeness and oak integration. The same could be said about the Côte de Nuits-Villages red below. This humble vineyard site lies right next to Jacques-Frederic Mugnier's Clos de la Marechale in the South of Nuits-St-Georges, and delivers shocking QPR. The Pinot dances between just ripe wild forest berries, autumnal spices, and subtle, deftly handled oak in a way that will scratch out Burgundy itch over and over again over the next year. These two wines overperform by leaps and bounds, and deserve a spot at each of you Burgundy lover's dinner tables.
