Jon Steeves 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 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.
Jane Staples 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.
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.)
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!

Natalie's Review

Veuve Ambal Brut Crémant De Bourgogne, Burgundy AC, France: 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! Drink: 2015-2019. 209619 12% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100. February 21, 2015 Best Value Sparkling Wine. Gorgeous Gift Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
