An incredible vertical of Les Amoureuses and a few bottles of Bonnes-Mares
 
Domaine Moine-Hudelot was a 6.80 hectare estate in Chambolle-Musigny. Daniel Moine, the owner, was the mayor of the village and lived in a house overlooking the vineyard of Les Feusselottes. The family owned some tremendous vineyards including 0.12 ha of Musigny, 0.32 ha of Bonnes-Mares and 0.20 ha of Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses.
 
However, as is the case with many Burgundy domaines taxes became an issue and Daniel, upon retirement, was forced to sell the vineyard holdings. The Musigny went to Leroy, and the Bonnes-Mares and Les Amoureuses to Pousse d'Or. Today, Domaine Moine-Hudelot no longer exists.
Moine-Hudelot Amoureuses 2 Over the last few months I have secured some small parcels of Moine-Hudelot's Les Amoureuses from the domaine's reserve holdings. Today I am delighted to present a serious vertical from the domaine for the Burgundy connoisseur.

Jasper Morris MW says "So often is this vineyard just referred to as Amoureuses that one might think it is a grand cru....When young it is almost ludicrously charming, yet it does not age quickly. Christophe Roumier served a bottle blind on one occasion - obviously Amoureuses in character, and clearly a great vintage, beginning to get into its stride yet with no undue signs of maturity. I was very confident with my guess of 1978, but it proved to be 1945." Clive Coates said of the domaine "(Moine-Hudelot) produces round, fragrant elegant wines, at the top levels of high quality."
 
Les Amoureuses in hard to find at any time and to obtain aged bottles in such superb condition from a range of vintages is an opportunity not to be missed. 

If you love Les Amoureuses or serious Burgundy in general I urge you to grab some bottles. It is unlikely we will see a run of these wines like this again.

Bichot 2016 Amoureuses Header
Albert Bichot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses 2016
24 bottles for Australia
Our allocation of Les Amoureuses 2016 was just 24 bottles. There is not much left!

Tim Atkin MW: In one sense, this is barely a négociant wine since the grapes are purchased from Alain Serveau, Bichot's long-term winemaker. It's a wonderful expression of this famous Grand Cru in all but name, with some whole bunch sap, lacy tannins, and the kind of sweet, succulent berry fruit that drives Pinotphiles wild. 2022-30. 96 Points

Landed Price $765.00
Pre Arrival Price $649.95
