- Tasting Notes
A strikingly spicy, airy, cool and elegant nose offers up wispy notes of red currant and pomegranate along with hints of lavender, herbal tea and violet. The beautifully refined middle weight flavors possess fine delineation and a touch of minerality that continues onto the cool, pure and ever-so-mildly tangy finale where a hint of wood appears. While certainly extremely pretty, this needs to add more depth.

The 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1Er Cru les Amoureuses has a crisp raspberry and cranberry-scented bouquet, a hint of dried orange peel in the background. The palate is very refined with crisp tannin, not a deep or voluminous Amoureuses, but sophisticated and quite complex, with tangible mineralite on the broody, almost introspective finish. I just think this needs several years in bottle.
