Vigneron: Alex Gambal

Born in Washington D.C., Alex Gambal discovered Burgundy in 1993 along with a passion for its wine. After learning about wine making and viticulture at the famous wine school in Beaune, he created a négociant-éleveur business in 1997.
The philosophy of Alex Gambal and of Fabrice Laronze, head winemaker, is a respect for the character of each appellation and vintage. In addition they believe that good wine making, although imperative, should be secondary to the quality of the grapes which result from relationships and a sharing of ideas with the growers. Achieving this goal requires constant attention to the individual vineyards including pruning techniques, green harvesting, and vine maturity(certain vineyard sites are even picked by their own small team of vendangeurs).
During élevage they believe in a minimum of human interference with the wine and allow the wine to truly show itself. The reds are never fined or filtered, only in certain vintages are the whites fined.Their portfolio is 50% from regional AOC, 30% from Villages AOC, and 20% from Premiers and Grands Crus AOC. The wines are from both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits (60% white and 40% red).
Their objectives are to produce no more than 60,000 bottles a year in order to maintain a high level of quality, and to remain humble and respectful of the land.
