This wine displays plenty of red fruits in its lively, fresh character.
Wine Advocate 90 points - Game, leather, wood smoke, cocoa powder, caramel, and creme de cassis mark the nose and of Ambroiseís 2008 Nuits St.-Georges Clos des Argillieres (which I last tasted assembled from tank), then collaborate for a palate-staining and ultimately surprisingly bright impression. There is a load of fresh sap drawn from somewhere despite the combination of liqueur-like dark berry sweetness; formidably dense if fine tannins; and strongly torrifactive notes from barrel. Pungently smoky and rather austerely stony elements add to the formidable and multifarious intensity of the finish. This should be worth following for 12-15 years. (Jun 2010)

Producer
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.
