Domaine-Jacques-Frédéric-Mugnier Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 2015
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Nuits|
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.
