A staggeringly great value. Got a wedding or graduation party? This is your bubbly. Tasty, toasty and bright with green apple refreshment. The Veuve Ambal finishes with white floral notes and lime zest. The vineyards from which the grapes are sourced have a similar topography to the neighboring region of Champagne to the north. Pair with fried chicken. Incredible!

Russell McDowell rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Very nice wine at a great price! Very complex taste even at this price. Went back out to get another 6 bottles!
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Delicate nose of vanilla, biscuit and mild pear, followed by a palate of pear, biscuit and hazelnuts. Delicious honeyed hazelnut finish.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine is amazing value and a must have for the seasonal celebrations. Traditional method sparkling, bold golden colour with a blush hue. 12% ABV and non vintage. Aromatics of baked bread (lees), minerality , mild orchard stone fruit. Crisp and refreshing, with seemingly non-stop fine bubbles. Well-balanced and nicely integrated, this wine is ready to go now with or without food and is a wine for all seasons. A wine to buy by the case. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 90/100.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh, crisp and great for any occassion bubbly! Moderate intensity aromas include: floral notes, peach, yeasty notes and minerality. The palate shows mostly citrus and minerality. Overall, a light crisp refreashing bubbly that pairs very well with friends and holiday gatherings. Tasted Dec 2015.
Corinna Horton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Veuve Ambal makes some very fine bubbly. Light pear and clover heighten this for me. Sharing much of the same topography, sparkling wines from Burgundy are every bit as good as those of the neighboring region of Champagne, at half the price. A good pop for the buck. (Try their Brute Rosé, fragrant & fruity.)
This French sparkling wine won a Gold Medal at the 2010 Burgondia d’Or de Nuits-Saint-Georges wine competition. This Burgundian bubbly is redolent of fresh field daisies and Asian pear. This winery's Grande Cuvée has tiny persistent bubbles. - Community Wine Reviews
