RATINGS

93-95The Wine Advocate

There is great transparency here, a slightly lighter style of Amoureuses with red cherries, strawberry and minerals. The palate is medium-bodied with very lithe tannin that belie the structure underneath.

92-94Stephen Tanzer

Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas and flavors of raspberry, minerals, spices and flowers. Quite tight and wound up today, with its strong mineral spine dominating the middle palate. Finishes with outstanding cut and lift and a pronounced element of salty minerality.

91-94Burghound.com

An expressive nose features notes of high-toned red berries, violet, lavender, sandalwood and a hint of Asian style tea. The supple, lacy and copiously mineral-inflected middle weight flavors possess a wonderfully refined mouth feel...

REGION

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.”

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.
