Wine AdvocateRoumier's 2008 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses - from an especially tiny crop even by vintage standards - suggests mincemeat in its combination of dried, tart berry concentration, rich meatiness, citrus oils, and smoky, spicy overlay. Palpably dense, it nevertheless reveals a vivacity and lift that come right out of the vintage playbook, as well as a strikingly silken texture for a wine so young let alone compact and invigoratingly tart. Decadent, lily-like floral perfume gains prominence as this takes on air, and a soy-like, saline savor - taken together with vibratory energy - really gives my lower jaw a lingering workout. Expect this to exercise your mind as well as your mandibles for the next 12-15 years.
