2008 Joseph Drouhin Premier Cru Chambolle-Musigny Amoureuses
13.0% alc.. $382-$449 (current price). Imported by Dreyfus, Ashby & Co, NY, NY. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Aromas of baked cherry, fruit compote, cardamom spice, oak and stem lead off. Light to mid weight styled with well-ripened cherry and cranberry flavors along with accents of vanilla, toast and spice. Inviting charm and balance with sinewy tannins and a remarkable finish that saturates the aromatic memory for a minute or two. Drink now to 2030. Score: Exceptional.

2002 Domaine Drouhin Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 1er
13.0% alc.. This vineyard is one of a handful that many experts deem worth of grand cru status (and is priced accordingly). It is situated just below Musigny and is considered the “younger brother to Musigny.” · The aromatics are quite sensual featuring violets, roses, and cassis. The predominately red fruit flavors are buttressed by brisk acidity. Clean, crisp and thoroughly satisfying, this is truly a complete wine deserving of great admiration.

2002 Joseph Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny Amoureuses
13.0% alc.. $560 (current price) Imported by Wine Brokers International, Incline Village, Nevada for a private collection. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Pleasant aromas of cherry and toast arrive over time. Rather delicate in style, with a tasty core of fresh dark red berry and black cherry fruit accented with subtle spice and oak. Very long in the mouth and on the finish with compatible tannins in the background. I was impressed by the seeming youth and freshness of this 16- year-old wine, yet the nose lacked virility. The finish went on and on. I can really get into a wine like this. Drink now-2025. Score: Exceptional. Reviewed February 4, 2018 ARTICLE »
