This 41 hectare Estate, owned by Veuve Ambal, is the largest in Chatillonnais, which is part of Burgundy that borders the Champagne region. Planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the vines are closely planted on low trellising, benefitting from the clay limestone soils. The limestone is so prevalent, that they use it to build homes in the local region.
Beginning in the 17th century, Cistercian monks from the Molesme Abbey established the vineyards on these slopes. This Estate produces Crémant de Bourgogne that expresses their mineral qualities with a lot of elegance and subtle but powerful aromas.
