  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94

    ($263) Deep red. Knockout musky aromas of red raspberry, flowers and sweet spices. Wonderfully sweet, lush and full but with pungent minerality and captivating floral high notes giving this very pure, silky wine definition and lift. Utterly sexy and seamless wine, and very Amoureuses. I wonder if this one will ever really shut down in the bottle. There's plenty of stuffing and underlying structure here for long life.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    A red that combines lightness with strength, this features floral, red currant and raspberry notes along with darker black cherry, spice and licorice elements. Supple and balanced, with understated power and a long, vibrant finish.

    By Le Moine standards, there are a generous hundred cases of 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses. It exhibits an almost confectionary, caramel- and vanilla-tinged black currant and boysenberry fruit, prominent cinnamon and ginger spice, and sweetly-perfumed florality. Remarkably polished and seamless, this wine offers overtly chalky and wet stone minerality to meet its sweetness of fruits and flowers more than half way, and fresh and invigoratingly tart suggestions accompany its riper fruit manifestations. The wine lingers with amazing sweetness and succulence yet without becoming superficial or losing definition, mineral tone and refreshment.

  • Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
