Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses is considered by many Burgundy lovers the finest Premier Cru on the Cote d'Or. it produces wines of great perfume with a silky texture and the much loved "peacock's tail".
It is held in very high regard by those who make it and is often priced above Grand Crus in the same portfolio. Jasper Morris MW lists it as one of his three favourite premier crus along with Vosne-Romanee Les Malconcorts and Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St-Jacques.
The 2011 Amoureuses from Albert Bichot has just been rated 97 Points - the equal highest 1er Cru of the vintage! That placed it even with some VERY big name Grand Crus including:
- DRC Richebourg 97 Points
- DRC Romanee-St-Vivant 97 Points
- Mommessin Clos de Tart 97 Points
- Dujac Bonnes-Mares 97 Points
- Georges Roumier Bonnes-Mares 97 Points
- Grivot Richebourg 97 Points
The list of Grand Crus it outscored is almost as impressive:
- DRC Grands Echezeaux 96 Points
- DRC Corton 96 Points
- Claude Dugat Chambertin 96 Points
- Fourrier Griottes-Chambertin 96 Points
- Sylvain Cathiard Romanee-St-Vivant 96 Points
- DRC Echezeaux 94 Points
and many, many more. All these wines sell for several times the price of Bichot's Les Amoureuses.
It even outscored the Comte de Vogue Les Amoureuses which costs twice as much!

Tim Atkin MW: this is everything you'd expect from the best red premier cru in Burgundy. It's very pure and aromatic, with supple, creamy, nuanced tannins, fine minerality and that X factor that you only seem to find in the great vineyards. Violets and red fruits, with a peacock's tail of a finish. 97 Points
