A must-have wine for all serious Burgundy Cellars
Almost Gone!
 
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses is one of Burgundy's most desirable wines. Despite being a Premier Cru its magnificent aroma and complex, silky palate make a wine of reverence.

Les Amoureuses produces magnificent, aromatic, complex and supple wines that outperform many Grand Crus. Accordingly, it is priced like a Grand Cru. The vineyard is 5.4 hectares in size and there are not a lot of producers. Clive Coates states "This is a vineyard which, like Clos St Jacques in Gevrey-Chambertin, is regarded by most - and priced accordingly - as the equal of a grand cru.... I regularly prefer it to Bonnes-Mares. But Bonnes-Mares it is not. Les Amoureuses is really a sort of younger brother to Musigny itself: perfumed, silky-smooth, intense and soft rather than brutal and muscular, and with real finesse".

Bichot typically make just a single barrel (280-300 bottles) of this wine so it is certainly on the Rare list in any vintage!
The vineyard belongs to Alain Serveau, Bichot's head winemaker (shown at at centre with Alberic Bichot to his left). The Bichot team won Red Winemaker of the Year at the International Wine Challenge 2017.

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

Domaine du Clos Frantin Echezeaux Grand Cru 2016

Tim Atkin MW: 
Every bit as good as the 2015 bottling, albeit one produced in rather more testing conditions, this comes from the Champs Traversins climat in the upper part of the Grand Cru. Yields were down to 25 hectolitres per hectare and this is correspondingly concentrated, with plenty of sweet berry fruit, a touch of good reduction and very promising length. Just needs time. 2024-32.

Jasper Morris MW: 
From Champs Traversins. Escaped the frost. Excellent rich noble purple, a little trace of reduction but very promising. Some sand in the soil. High class fruit here with a little touch of velvet, then almost a chocolate note at the back but without falling into obvious over-ripeness. Lower acidity and tannins. 92-94 Points

Jancis Robinson: 
Fragrant and smoky on the nose and palate. Chewy texture, compressed fruit. Very much in its infancy. Tight, restrained and compact. Unquestionable purity of fruit, which has a charming bitter stemminess to finish. (RH) 

(Drink between 2020-2040).18/20
Landed Price $525.00
