Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 2015

SKU 11359


Les Amoureuses represents the very essence of Burgundy; the most Burgundian of Burgundy wines. No other wine in the world has that paradoxical union of exceptional richness (aromatic intensity, depth of texture and length on the palate) and such airy delicacy. The "nose" is a bouquet of flowers and red berry fruit. If any wine has the ability to arouse emotions it is Les Amoureuses… Allow this wine at least 7 years to develop. Patient people however will realise that the ageing potential can exceed 5 decades for certain great vintages.

Wine AdvocateMugnier's 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses is spine-tinglingly beautiful, soaring from the glass with a haunting bouquet of violets, wild rose, Griotte cherries and red plum, with fruits and flowers currently taking center stage and little to hint at the savory bass notes to come with bottle age. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, velvety and expansive, its generously textural-almost gourmand-attack giving way to a layered core of crunchy, pristine fruit framed by chalky tannins and succulent acids. This Amoureuses' weightless concentration is incredible, and its finish, unsurprisingly, is long, racy and penetrating.
