The name of this particular plot means "the lovers", which gives birth to all sorts of romantic ideas. Nobody today can really give a convincing reason for the nomenclature of the vineyard. In 1948, however, Camille Rodier stated: « In Burgundy, a wine containing the word amour must be a great aromatic wine; full of fire and sap ». So be it. The soil is primarily made up of a layer of red clay of about 30 to 50 cm in depth lying over a compact limestone "slab" with very little fissuring. The vines however manage to force their roots into this rock with impressive force.. The complexity of the wine gives a clear indication of the nature of the soil. Let's just say that the name perfectly fits the feminine, brilliant style of this vine. Les Amoureuses, without doubt, is the greatest of the Premiers Crus of Chambolle-Musigny. It can easily measure up to many of the Grand Crus of the Côte d'Or. For us, 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…

The 2021 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses wafts from the glass with scents of sweet smoky berries mingled with notions of orange zest, peonies, spices and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, with a broad and satiny attack that segues into a fleshy core of fruit, it's a perfumed, sensual wine animated by lively acids and concluding with a saline finish. This is a wine that will delight readers who love the Burgundy of yesteryear.

The 2021 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru has a spellbinding bouquet with effervescent red cherries, red currant, hints of yuzu and sous-bois, brimming with energy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, elegant and silky with a harmonious finish. Not a ravishing Les Amoureuses yet the pedigree of the climat shines through. Frankly, it cocks a snook at the Bonnes-Mares.
