"Excellent" - 2015 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

Posted by Ian McFadden

Les Amoureuses is the most sought after wine in Bertheau’s stable.

Collectors aggressively hunt it down. And landing it in anything close to decent quantity is very difficult. Bertheau only has 0.32ha of the 1er Cru. Currently, there are no other listings for Bertheau's 2015 Amoureuses in the U.S.

Les Amoureuses is a site that Burgundy lovers freak out over.  It's a Grand Cru in all but name. It struts a spellbinding level of refinement and ethereal complexity. There are few wines in all of Burgundy as stirring or that reaches a similar level of breeding and nuance.

Bertheau's Amoureuses represents one of the great marriages between producer and site. Bertheau's wines thrive on understatement and a walk on tip-toe elegance.

The 2015s represent a near-perfect marriage between producer and vintage. Bertheau's  2015 Amoureuses is completely stunning and delivers all of the haunting beauty, aromatic complexity, and finesse that makes the 1er Cru so revered. I really like Burghound's tasting note: "The sleek, refined and pure medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality". The precision and finesse are jaw-dropping. 

It's a real luxury to be able to offer Bertheau's Amoureuses. Simply put, it is a great wine and a rarity. I expect it to sell out quickly.

2015 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses

Special Bottle Price: $399.95
Burghound: "As it almost always is, this is the spiciest and most elegant wine in the range with its expressive and ripe yet cool nose of sandalwood, spice, violet, anise and a hint of Asian-style tea. The sleek, refined and pure medium weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality onto the harmonious and classy finale. In contrast to the prior wines, this would best be allowed at least 5-ish years of cellar time first and it should amply repay extended keeping. Excellent."
