The Maison Veuve Ambal was founded in the heart of the Burgundy wine-growing regions.
Marie Ambal was married to a Parisian banker. After his death she returned to her native village of Rully, where her brother still lived. He was an owner and merchant of Burgundy wines.
This time saw the beginnings of the champagne method. Marie was interested in it and decided to create her own Maison in 1898. To begin with, she produced both red and white high-quality champagne-method sparking wines. She worked to make the Maison flourish in economic and quality terms. When she died in 1929 the reins passed to her grandson, Charles Roux-Ambal.
