Tasting Notes

    Neal Martin, March 2019,
    Score: 96

    The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses was matured in 15% new oak, a drastic reduction than previous vintages to express the terroir. It is 100% whole cluster fruit. It has another really quite bewitching bouquet with detailed black and red fruit, crushed violet, just a hint of vanilla pod in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin, pure black cherry and blue fruit, outstanding mineralité and a pixelated, crystalline finish that beckons you back for another sip. Unquestionably one of the finest Les Amoureuses that this Domaine has ever produced. Tasted at the Domaine. 96/100 DRINK 2023 - 2050

    Score: 92-94

    (a blend of 75- and 20-year-old vines; vinified with 50% whole clusters and aged in 15% new oak): Saturated dark red. Very ripe scents of dark fruits, minerals and cocoa powder, complemented by a spicy oak element. Plush, silky and deep, offering hints of blue and black fruits lifted by violet and citrus notes. The younger-vines component contributes juiciness and delineation to this wine. Not a powerhouse but impeccably balanced, finishing with very suave, seamless tannins. This wine may well offer early pleasure. Groffier actually made two different cuvées of Amoureuses in 2016; this one comprises about three-quarters of the total. The other cuvée, made from selected parcels, will be held back for a later release. 92-94 / 100

Chambolle-Musigny

The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
