Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses

FOOD PAIRINGS: This wine should be served with delicately prepared dishes, such as “Canard aux cerises” (duck cooked with cherries) or “Boeuf aux morilles” (beef with morels). The cheeses should be ripe but not too strong.

TASTING NOTES: Les Amoureuses is a masterpiece of finesse and complexity; with its ruby or cherry-like hue, it also has a seductive palette of aromas constantly in flux: it is not unusual to first detect raspberry or kirsch flavors, followed by fleeting truffle or mushroom aromas, ending on a humus note. In some years, the nose will always retain elegance and reserved stance. On the palate, the tannins are never on the forefront but blend themselves seamlessly with the flavors. All silk and velvet, Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses leaves an ethereal impression of supreme refinement.

Premier Cru

 

 

DESCRIPTION:

    • In French, “Les Amoureuses” means “the lovers”, probably one of the most appropriate names for a vineyard in all Burgundy: tasting this wine is like falling in love!
    • Officially a Premier Cru, it very often reaches the same price as other neighboring Grand Crus.
    • It is one of the Crown Jewels of the Joseph Drouhin vineyards, and no expense or toil is spared when it comes to its cultivation and vinification.
    • The vineyard itself is planted with old Pinot Noir vines whose clones are jealously kept in order to retain the genetic heritage of the vine stocks as much as possible.

GRAPE VARIETY:

    • 100% Pinot Noir
