The nose of this Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru "Les Amoureuses" features redcurrant and strawberry scents, which evolve toward to more complex aromas of figs and leather. The palate is extremely elegant, beautifully structured and there is good balance between the soft, silky tannins and well-integrated, supple oak. Food Pairing: Great with finely-cooked red meats and delicate cheeses.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Amoureuses, which contains 20-25% whole bunch fruit, has a surprisingly understated bouquet when considering both the precocity of the vintage and the esteemed vineyard in question. It gently unfurls with red cherries, strawberry preserve, crushed rose petals and wet stone. This is very classy and dare I say, I might mistake it for say one of Christophe Roumier's wines. The palate is very refined with crisp acidity, shimmering red cherry and strawberry fruit, superb mineralité and great tension on the finish. Do not underestimate this Amoureuses, because I suspect it will have a long and prosperous future.
