Robert Groffier Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

375.00

The name might refer to a meeting place for lovers, but a more practical if no less romantic interpretation of Les Amoureuses is that the soil here thickens in the rain, sticking to one's boots like entwined lovers. Whatever the origin, this is one of Burgundy's finest vineyards, located just north of the grand cru Musigny. Even in its youth, the perfume here is certainly seductive, suggesting violets, spice, orange peel, mint, and damp earth. Juicy and showing its immaturity with a tightness that will soften and become increasingly silky with time in the bottle.
