"Tasted blind, Mugnier's stunning 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses similarly confirmed its magical showing earlier this year, soaring from the glass with a blaze of cherries, orange rind, licorice and rose petals. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and layered, seemingly beginning to shut down, with racy acids, an ineffable sense of completeness and a beautifully integrated chassis of incipiently satiny structuring tannin." 95+ William Kelley

"Bright, dark red. Knockout nose combines black raspberry, pepper, spices, menthol and rose petal. At once silky and bright on entry, then classically dry and a bit youthfully clenched in the middle, with its flavors of raspberry liqueur, minerals, chocolate and licorice in need of serious bottle aging to expand. This very ripe but energetic wine shows the suavest tannins among these 2015s to this point, spreading out to saturate the palate on the very long finish." 94+ Stephen Tanzer

"The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru is a wine that threw me at first. The high-toned, slightly smudged bouquet doles out the requisite blue fruit without much in the way of terroir expression, which, frustratingly, only seems to be revealed after 15-20 minutes. The palate is rounded and, again, quite vivacious and high-toned, featuring sharp, citric blue and black fruit that attacks the finish. This will require several years in bottle and decanting, but it is a great Les Amoureuses even if it initially seems a bit over the top." 94 Neil Martin
