This esteemed vineyard bordering Musigny and Clos de Vougeot regularly produces one of Lucien Le Moine's most celebrated wines. Mounir says that the vineyard parcel from which his wine comes from has roots that go deep into the rocks, and the wine can be described as one with a lot of minerality, but with very little tannin or acidity, and notably a character of a very limited attack that draws out to an incredibly persistent finish. This character is what you leaves you breathless after you drink it, as you ask yourself - where did this wine all of a sudden come from?

Wine AdvocateEasily Mounir's finest Chambolle premier cru, the 2013 Chambolle-Musigny les Amoureuses 1er Cru has a very elegant bouquet with plush red cherry and strawberry coulis underlaid by fine minerals. The palate is medium-bodied with a crisp tannin, quite structured and more masculine that you would expect and a sappy, cola-tinged finish. This just sashays across the senses with an air of confidence.
