Lucien Le Moine Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 2014

SKU 1468


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 AdvocateThe 2014 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses has a fragrant nose of red plum, wild strawberry and mineral scents that are beautifully focused. There is something incisive about the bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, slightly chalky tannin, fine depth with hints of marmalade and spice towards the finish that fans out with a sense of confidence. The pedigree of this vineyard shines through in this barrel sample and hopefully that will be translated once in bottle. Drink Date: 2020-2045.
