Tasting Notes

This too is quite aromatically ripe with its overtly floral-suffused aromas, and in particular rose petal, lilac and violet, along with nuances of spiced tea, dark cherry and raspberry scents. There is a beguiling mouth feel to the stony and well-detailed medium weight flavors deliver terrific length on the firm but not austere finale. Curiously though, this isn't presently as complex as the best in the range and while more will undoubtedly develop with time in bottle, it's not clear that this is necessarily a standout in 2015. With that cavil duly noted however, I underscore that it's certainly still excellent. Note: 50% whole clusters

The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses delivers on the promise that comes with such a propitious vineyard. That said, initially it has a very broody bouquet that demands coaxing from the glass. Eventually it offers up bilberry and briary scents, fine mineralité and further on, sensual floral scents that leave you feeling a bit giddy. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a very fine line of acidity. This is pure and sensual with blackberry and even a touch of seaweed on the finish. This is an enigmatic Chamboole-Musigny, surfeit with complexity and intrigue. I am sure it will end up at the top of my banded score.
