A Lovely and Lively Beaune Blanc

David Bloch moves from red to white Burgundy.


2010 Maison Ambroise, Ladoix Les Grêchons
This 2010 Premier Cru from the Cote de Beaune is impressive.  I first tried Ambroise’s Ladoix with friend and importer Bobby Kacher years ago.  I really like this wine and find it to be a tremendous value.  But I drank them young.  Bobby recommended that I lay down some 2010 and I am glad I did.  This is really fine Chardonnay that smells great – very ripe with a floral nose.  I get a lot of honeydew melon, white peach and a touch of spice in the mouth.  The wine seems to unfold with waves of fruit.  The finish is really long.  This is a big wine but doesn’t ever feel flabby, owing to the nicely balanced acidity.  The only nit – Ambroise uses 100% new oak, which is still peeking through after all these years.   I am not sure that additional aging will vanish it.  But the wine is delicious.
