American Alex Gambal visited Burgundy back in the 1990’s, fell in love and never left. As much as the concept of an American making wine in Burgundy might come across as some sort of winemaking anathema, fear not, our Alex has his act well together, along with a deep and abiding respect for the terroir in which he operates.
Not only are his wines extremely well made, they are exceptionally well-priced (not something that comes up that often when one is contemplating Burgundian expressions). He has established solid relationships with the local growers, and the philosophy of both Alex and his head winemaker, Fabrice Laronze, revolves around a regard for the individual character of each appellation and vintage, along with a passionate belief that the quality of the grapes means everything.
