A highly spiced and stunningly elegant nose offers up a complex mixture of dried rose petal and red and blue berry fruit aromas that introduce precise, pure and gorgeously intense moderately full-bodied flavors that deliver serious punch and drive while being supported by dense but fine tannins, all wrapped in a tautly muscular and seductively textured finish that speaks of grenadine and strong minerality.

Bright, deep red. Musky red fruits and flinty minerality on the nose, with piquant topnotes of orange peel and white pepper. Chewy and sappy, with its powerful, cool minerality conveying a taut impression of Amoureuses terroir The very long, rising finish is downright luminous.

The de Vogue 2008 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses is alluringly scented with iris, red raspberry, citrus oils, and illusive intimations of crystalline, crushed stone minerality. The richness of fruit here does indeed support Millet's description of 'syrup,â?� but at the same time, one could hardly do better than accept his characterization of this particular wine as displaying 'the synergy between natural minerality and the freshness of the 2008 vintage.â?� There is a subtlety and transparency of fruit to mineral and floral nuances here reminiscent of water color, a metaphor of mine with which Millet is willing to go along on several levels, including its support of his notion that the fruit character of the vintage is fragile, but that once captured in bottle in timely fashion will not easily fade. I would expect great things from this deeply complex yet ethereal, persistently shimmering beauty over the next 12-15 years.
