Chambolle Musigny Amoureuses, Domaine Mugnier 2020

Tasting Notes

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.

Frederic Mugnier has a big plot of Amoureuses and a little one above the road which he has pulled out. Fred makes a point of the yellow ochre clay in contact with the rock as being the key tpo this vineyard. The 2020 has a rich dense purple colour, with an explosion of fruit on the nose, as ripe as one would want. Keep sucking up the aromatics! This continues on the palate, with a sensuality of texture allied to exactly the same aromatic profile, backed by fresh acidity. A very exciting Amoureuses to gladden our hearts in the yaers to come.
