2002 Vincent Girardin Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

13.5% alc.. Imported by Vineyard Brands, Inc., Birmingham, Alabama. · Dark garnet color in the glass. I have extensive notes on this wine. Engaging aromas of black cherry, Asian spices, undergrowth, rose petal, toasty oak and charcoal grill. Broad- shouldered and powerful, with mid weight plus flavors of blackberry, cassis, and dark chocolate. There is a noticeable savory and earthy side to this wine as well. Highly flavorful and beautifully balanced with a creamy mouth feel, although the finishing length did not quite match up to several other wines in this review session. That said, this was a highly nuanced wine that showed the more gutsy side of this vineyard. Drink now-2025. Score: Exceptional. Reviewed February 4, 2018
