Les Amoureuses is a well-loved appellation, not just because of its name, but also because of its close proximity to the famous Grand Cru Musigny, and which is why many believe Les Amoureuses should be a Grand Cru instead of a 1er Cru. In fact many winemakers serve Les Amoureuses together with Bonnes-Mares and Musigny or even after them. Even Clive Coates once 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”.
Due to the scarcity and the supreme quality that the terroir can offer, Les Amoureuses is a veritable treasure trove for Claret collectors and connoisseurs. 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" which only around 4 barrels are made each year. Véronique 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."

With its fine tannic structure, plum juice sweetness and beautifully ripe fruits, this is a wine that combines structure with a rich velvet coat. The acidity gives a fine lift, bringing out strawberries and a final piercing freshness.

Light-medium red. Captivating, perfumed, terroir-driven nose combines blood orange, flowers, cinnamon, cola and underbrush. Round, suave and refined, with considerable complexity to its sweet, spicy red and dark fruit flavors. Already wonderfully shapely and aromatic, but it would be a shame not to give this sexy, long wine at least a few years in the cellar.
