|Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits
While I may have preferred the aromas of Mugnier’s other offerings in this vintage, the baked cherry pie and creamed mocha-scented 2003 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses stands out for its magnificent personality. A seamless wine of immense depth, concentration, as well as length, it is broad, expansive, and jam-packed with plummy black cherries. This intense medium to full-bodied effort wonderfully combines power with grace
Cask sample. Very heady yet clear, fleshy with fabulous topnotes. Lively, lots of fruit but it’s the nose that is its strongest suit. Some meat in the middle though not the flesh of some other years.
