All of the VEUVE AMBAL domaines are managed using sustainable
methods. The use of specific cultivation techniques aims to reduce the use of
treatments by optimising their position and efficiency.
environmentally friendly and sustainable approach is an indication of Veuve
Ambal's desire to reduce its impact on nature. These environmental concerns are
at the core of the company's ethos, from the vineyards right up to the
vinification of the wines.
AMBAL counts 250ha of vines making it one of the largest owners of viticultural
surface area in Burgundy.
The domaines are located in 6 different terroirs. This
diversity brings richness and aromatic complexity to the wines produced. The
Crémant de Bourgogne by VEUVE AMBAL draws on the unique characteristics of each
Burgundian terroir, just as an artist uses his palette of colours in order to
magnify the beauty of his painting.
