94-96 Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses emerges from the glass with a rich, textured fabric of ripe red fruit, flowers and minerals in a voluminous, expansive style. This shows marvelous radiance and richness in its deep layers of fruit." 92-95 Allen Meadows: "An extremely fresh and strikingly complex nose speaks of violets, anise, clove and cinnamon on the mélange of red and blue pinot fruit. The detailed and ultra fine middle weight flavors are also intensely mineral-driven and culminate in a posed, harmonious and explosively long finish where an interesting note of mandarin surfaces. A text book Amoureuses." (01/11) 92 Steve Tanzer: "Good bright, dark red. Raspberry, blueberry and pomegranate fruit aromas are complicated by exotic lichee and hints of peach and grapefruit. The silky palate shows a penetrating sweetness leavened by harmonious acidity, with captivating grapefruit and pineapple notes and firm underlying minerality contributing to the impression of precision. Very refined and lively wine, and not at all fat. Leaves a scent of red rose behind in the empty glass. Showing beautifully today."
