A Rising Star in Burgundy
Maison Alex Gambal
Once you have truly fine Burgundy of any Cru, you are hooked. The history, the countryside, and more than anything else, the balance and purity of Red and White Burgundy reveal how there is no better place for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to be grown.
Alex Gambal is just such a person. He left America and his real estate business to indulge his dream of not only drinking, but creating Burgundy.
He set up a winery where he buys grapes, and also owns certain property. His goal is to make wine in a traditional fashion, using native yeasts and all natural practices. He regularly de-stems his Pinot Noir as was the practice of the likes of Henri Jayer.
The resulting wines are delicious, perfectly balanced wines that are to be savored.
Alex is certainly a rising star.
