RATINGS

90-92The Wine Advocate

The palate is very refined with crisp tannin, not a deep or voluminous Amoureuses, but sophisticated and quite complex, with tangible mineralité on the broody, almost introspective finish.

90-92Burghound.com

The beautifully refined middle weight flavors possess fine delineation and a touch of minerality that continues onto the cool, pure and well-balanced finale.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny, Les Amoureuses

Les Amoureuses is a Premier Cru vineyard in the Chambolle-Musigny appellation in Burgundy. The 13-5 acre vineyard lies down slope form the Grand Cru Le Musigny. Because of its excellent quality, Les Amoureuses is regarded more like a Grand Cru than a Premier Cru. The largest landholder is Robert Groffier et Fils, who owns nearly 3 acres. Clive Coates has written that “Les Amoureuses is really a sort of younger brother to Musigny itself; perfumed, silky smooth, intense and soft rather than brutal and muscular, and with real finesse.”

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
