Geographically positioned just below Musigny, many believe Les Amoureuses should be a grand cru instead of 1er Cru. In fact many winemakers serve Les Amoureuses together with Bonnes Mares and Musigny or even after them. Even Clive Coates has said “together with Gevrey-Chambertin's Clos Saint-Jacques, Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses is the prime premier cru candidate for promotion to grand cru. This is already widely acknowledged”. Compared to Musigny (10.85ha) or Bonnes Mares (15.06ha), Les Amoureuses is a tiny plot with only 5.4ha. Georges Roumier and JF Mugnier are top producers here and taking Georges Roumier as an example, a bottle of Les Amoureuses 2005 is priced around HK$38,000 per bottle in the market #.
The wines of Joseph Drouhin are truly reliable in Burgundy and fully reflect how each terroir should be. To head winemaker of Joseph Drouhin, Véronique Boss-Drouhin, Les Amoureuses is the most favorable red and thinks it is "one of the most subtle wines in all of Burgundy" and only around 4 barrels are made each year. Véronique Boss-Drouhin describes his Les Amoureuses with the following beautiful words –
“The aromas are always restrained and elegant. On the palate, a wonderful silky sensation, with very refined tannins. Intensity, velvety texture and lively freshness: this well-named wine is a masterpiece of harmony. The aftertaste is very delicate and leaves an impression of supreme refinement."
Ready in stock, we are delighted to offer one single parcel of three top Burgundy vintages – 1999, 2002 & 2005. Due to the scarcity of this wine, back vintages are rare in the market and nearly impossible to find a collection consisting only of the best vintages. They remain well priced in comparison, and especially so given the quality on offer.
