Chambolle Musigny Amoureuses, Joseph Drouhin 2009
A stunningly broad, even kaleidoscopic nose displays a gorgeous spiciness to the violet, cassis and plum aromas that complement to perfection the extremely rich yet admirably precise mineral-driven flavors that brim with dry extract and culminate in an elegant, pure and driving finish. This beautifully balanced and extremely stylish effort is a classic Amoureuses. Buy it.
|Score: 93/95||Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (42), May 2011|
Medium red with a palish rim. Wonderfully floral on the nose, with captivating aromas of red raspberry, cherry, white pepper and rose. Silky and complex on entry, with a strong crushed stone character, then taut and vibrant in the middle, with terrific definition for the year. Finishes very long and lively. This really transcends the vintage.
