Georges Roumier Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses 2017
95-97 Points - Vinous Media
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru had already been blended when I visited the domaine in November. It has a glorious bouquet that is quintessential Amoureuses: mainly red fruit tinged with blueberry, and then incense and crushed violets. Not as powerful as some vintages, but it oozes refinement. The palate shows exquisite balance, filigreed tannin and a texture so silky it belongs in a lingerie department. There is just the right amount of salinity toward the finish, which feels like a ballerina en pointe. A masterclass in how to articulate Les Amoureuses, courtesy of Christophe Roumier. Magnificent.
Le Du’s does quite a bit of buying directly in Europe. As a result, we are able to offer older and rare bottles at compelling prices. The listed quantities are confirmed and on their way from France. THIS IS NOT VIRTUAL INVENTORY. We have shipments arriving monthly so your wait time will be anywhere from 4-6 weeks. One of our staff will contact you to confirm your order and let you know when we expect the wines to arrive.
If you have any questions or would like to be included on our Fine & Rare list so you can receive offers on these types of wines before they ever hit the web, contact our General Manager directly at JT@leduwines.com.
