No Readiness No Sale - Domaine Robert Ampeau
Why Bordeaux is always more appealing to wine beginners than Burgundy? Besides the expensive price, scattered subregions, difficulties of remembering the pronunciation of villages, the most panicking part is that most of them are of traditional style. Hence it takes a long time for those Premier and Grand Crus to be mature. When beginners try young bottle age burgundy, the first impression will not be very good.
Fortunately, some producers keep a very good custom of No Readiness No Sale; Which means that wine will not be sold when they are not ready.
This very good custom is commonplace in Italy, yet there are some humble and down to the earth Burgundy producers keep it as well. Robert Ampeau is one of them.
They own 10 Premier Crus. Old chief Robert passed away in 2004 and now it is his son Michel taking charge. A batch of back vintages have just been released direct ex-domaine. All of them are made by late Robert. Sorry that the flagship label Meursault Perrieres is not found on the list. It is considered as a candidate to be promoted as the Grand Cru. Their Puligny Montrachet Combette is regarded as a textbook example of the purity and precision of the appellation. The reds should not be over seen cause all of them have a cellar potential of 30 years.
