Very rich and gorgeous on the nose. Such a fabulous blend of intensity and richness.

93-95Stephen Tanzer

Vibrant, perfumed aromas of raspberry, wild herbs and white pepper; smells intense. Then dense, sappy and very fine-grained on the palate, with terrific lift and inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of raspberry, white pepper, stony minerality, mint and spices. This has 2010-like tension. Finishes dry, classic and incisive, with a firm spine of sweet tannins and terrific mouthwatering length.

92-94The Wine Advocate

...mark on the nose, infusing the fruit with allspice and cloves...palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth, velvety tannins that caress the sumptuous finish that belies that structure underneath.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, 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.”


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.
