Critical Acclaim

"By Le Moine standards, there are a generous hundred cases of 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses. It exhibits an almost confectionary, caramel- and vanilla-tinged black currant and boysenberry fruit, prominent cinnamon and ginger spice, and sweetly-perfumed florality. Remarkably polished and seamless, this wine offers overtly chalky and wet stone minerality to meet its sweetness of fruits and flowers more than half way, and fresh and invigoratingly tart suggestions accompany its riper fruit manifestations. The wine lingers with amazing sweetness and succulence yet without becoming superficial or losing definition, mineral tone and refreshment."
95 Points

"A red that combines lightness with strength, this features floral, red currant and raspberry notes along with darker black cherry, spice and licorice elements. Supple and balanced, with understated power and a long, vibrant finish. Best from 2015 through 2035."
94 Points

"Deep red. Knockout musky aromas of red raspberry, flowers and sweet spices. Wonderfully sweet, lush and full but with pungent minerality and captivating floral high notes giving this very pure, silky wine definition and lift. Utterly sexy and seamless wine, and very Amoureuses. I wonder if this one will ever really shut down in the bottle. There's plenty of stuffing and underlying structure here for long life."
