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…

Captivating aromas of peonies, rose petals, blood orange, violets, raspberries and warm spices preface Mugnier's 2020 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses, a medium to full-bodied, ample and exquisitely perfumed wine that's elegant and seamless, with a perfumed, sensual profile and a long, resonant finish.

The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru offers lovely red berries, kirsch and blood orange scents on the nose - very harmonious and beautifully focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp acidity (more than Bonnes-Mares) with a very tensile, quite spicy finish that lingers in the mouth. This is just so sublime that I find it difficult to spit out.
