The nose of this Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cm "Les Amoureuses" features redcurrant and strawberry scents, which evolve toward to more complex aromas of figs and leather. The palate is extremely elegant, beautifully structured and there is good balance between the soft, silky tannins and well-integrated, supple oak. Great with finely-cooked red meats and delicate cheeses.
This is smoky and spicy, featuring sandalwood and Asian spice notes that grace the cherry and raspberry flavors. Firm and tense, with refined tannins lining the finish. Drink now through 2029.
Open-knit and somewhat ephemeral, the 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses reveals notes of spicy cherries and creamy new oak, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny palate with a fleshy core and melting tannins, concluding with a somewhat fleeting finish. While it's a pretty wine, it doesn't live up to the standards of this great vineyard in 2017.
