A Lovely and Lively Beaune Blanc


David Bloch moves from red to white Burgundy.

Ambroise

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.
