Chambolle Musigny les Amoureuses 2016 Georges Roumier
Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits
There is only around half the production of the 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses this year, which equates to three barrels or a measly 750 bottles. It has a heavenly bouquet with lifted black cherries, cassis and blueberry that are just so vivacious, as if not caring two hoots about the frost damage. The palate is beautifully balanced with fine and slightly chalky tannin. There is a noticeable saline influence with hints of oyster shell toward the dense, gently grippy finish and finally hints of tea leaf on the aftertaste. The only thing wrong about this wine is the quantity. Bewitching...
