96Wine Spectator

This red is vibrant, airy and silky, setting the stage for the strawberry, cherry, violet and spice flavors. Reveals a vein of minerality as this develops on the palate, with intensity and precise focus on the long finish. Very complex and seamless.

94-96The Wine Advocate

...wafts from the glass with thrilling aromas of raspberries, bergamot, warm spices, rose petals and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, lively and seamless, it's elegant and fine-boned, with a long, intensely perfumed finish. It's the most ethereal wine in the range this year.

A more elegant, and certainly spicier, combination freely reveals its aromas of rose petal, lavender, violet, exotic tea, kirsch and pretty essence of red pinot fruit scents. The seductive and super-fine, lacy and seductively textured middle weight flavors exude evident minerality on the dusty, chalky and youthfully austere finale that goes on and on.


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.”


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.
