Mugnier Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses 2002 750mL
Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier’s 2002 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Armoureuses meets the highest of expectations, bursting from the glass with aromas of griotte cherry, raspberry, peony and licorice. On the palate, the wine is sappy, transparent and expansive, its acids succulent, its tannins supremely silky and its finish long and saline. Such is its textural finesse that one could almost miss its sinewy extract. While this is beginning to drink very well, a few more years of bottle age will likely be rewarded by additional aromatic extravagance.
