Chambolle Musigny les Amoureuses 2001 Comte de Vogue
|Brand||Comte de Vogue|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Now at 13 years of age, the Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru les Amoureuses 2001 has a surprisingly reserved nose with broody, blackberry fruit. With continued aeration it curiously develops an almost Merlot-like character. The palate is aloof at first but gradually opens up to reveal its smooth, velvety interior. This is a very polished Amoureuses–you could almost argue too polished. Yes, there is a cheek-pinch of white pepper on the finish, but somehow it is missing the charm of the Chambolle 1er Cru 1999 tasted in tandem.
