Tasted blind in a lineup of 2011 Amoureuses in Holland, this 2011 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Amoureuses has a very deep garnet color. The nose is intense from the beginning with macerated dark cherries, blackberry, citrus fruit, orange zest and minerals. The palate is medium-bodied with good density. This is a more sinewy Amoureuses with firm, almost obdurate tannins, great depth and a fine line of acidity. Good grip on the finish, but there is more tension here and there is a lovely saltiness on the aftertaste. Tasted June 2014.

Deep, bright red. Subtle, pure nose offers black raspberry, black cherry, mint, menthol and a hint of citrus skin. Wonderfully silky and sweet but the black fruit flavors come off more savory than sugary owing to the wine's strong limestone character. Finishes sappy, uncompromisingly dry and very long, with firm tannins and lovely mineral and floral lift.

This is notably more deeply colored with a more pronounced floral character to the exceptionally spicy, pure and stony aromas that feature notes of violets, plum and cassis. There is a beguiling sense of freshness to the middle weight flavors that possess an ultra-sophisticated mouth feel as there is a lovely sense of refinement to the fine-grained tannins that are supporting the beautifully complex mineral-driven and well-balanced finish. This should reward well mid to perhaps even longer-term cellaring.
