Most Burgundy aficionados agree that Les Amoureuses should be a Grand Cru, and arguably take its place among the best of them. The market agrees, and the prices of Amoureuses are higher than many Grand Crus. It has all the finesse of Musigny, with its own intriguing signature; cherry, raspberry, and blackberry wrapped with a peppery spiciness, rose, and violet. The wine is deliciously inviting when young but capable of very long aging. The vineyard is situated right next to Musigny on comblanchien limestone, which is very mineral in character and contains a high proportion of pebbles. Christophe Roumier describes the wine as “silky tannins, delicate texture, an ethereal character which has no need of mass to be intense… a wine of natural gracefulness.” Frédéric Mugnier also refers to this “taste impression of intensity without mass”. We will have wines from the best growers for this in-depth study. Burgundy lovers will not want to miss this fascinating comparison highlighting one of the greatest terroirs in all of Burgundy.
