Robert Ampeau was one of the most respected producers in Burgundy and popular among fellow growers in which many have bottles of his creations stashed in their cellars. Located in Puligny-Montrachet, the Domaine has holdings covering about 10 hectares of vineyard, including land in 10 Premier Crus, 4 of which are in Meursault, while the other are scattered around Puligny, Beaune, Blagny and Savigny. The domaine was passed down to Robert's son, Michel, who had continued his father's amazing work both in the vineyard and winery. They are known for their meticulous work in the vineyards without using much high-tech support. The wines are fermented, without stalks, in cement caves followed by ageing in barriques (largely used oak) for 10 months. They bottle up the wines early and age them in its bottle, and finally only release the wines when they deem the wines to be ready for drinking. Their red wines are smooth, well-balanced, full-bodied in the mouth with lovely mellow tannins and lots of character and charm, with excellent length and aromatic complexity with notes of red fruit, spices and humus; while their whites are aged to perfection with their excellent balance and strong typical character, intense, classical and very elegant. Despite the meticulous work and long ageing process, it is surprising how reasonable their wines are priced.
