Vinous – 93
The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er Cru, from the only part that is under Musigny, has a fragrant and poised bouquet with violet-tinged blue fruit. Fine delineation here. The palate is smooth and quite sensual with fine tannins, just a slight and welcome bitterness that keeps this on edge towards the finish. Quite linear on the finish, this will deserve several years in bottle, but it needs more joie-de-vivre and, for want of a better word…soul.
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2052
