Veuve Ambal Blanc de Blancs is 100% Chardonnay sourced from the sunny South of France. The beauty of this wine is its simplicity. Ripe melons and peaches, generous body. Creamy and zesty. Veuve Ambal Blanc de Blancs is perfect to sip on its own if I was perfectly honest. It will pair well with any savoury finger foods too.
Veuve Ambal is a house devoting its time to traditional method Sparkling wines. Being in Burgundy they have the advantage that they can use Pinot Noir and Chardonnay: The two quality grapes of Champagne. Therefore their wines have character and charm. They are not Champagne, they are lighter and less complex. They are a fraction of the price of Champagne though. Veuve Ambal and Cremant, in general, are a great alternative to Champagne.
The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool-climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
