About This Wine

Amoureuses is Grand Cru in all but name.

The 1er Cru is priced higher than many Grand Crus and Burgundy fanatics chase down the wines from here with a singular fervor.

Drouhin turns out one of my favorite Amoureuses. Their jewel box style finds its perfect complement in the Amoureuses. There have been many times that Drouhin's Amoureuses has blown me away. Very few wines are capable of being so riveting.

Their Amoureuses is intense and mind-bendingly complex, but what really makes your head spin is its mesmerizing perfume, its ultra-refined tension and length.

The 2018 shows Drouhin's Amoureuses in prime form. The wine's breeding, whispering complexity, and ethereal finesse are on bold display. Its precision and purity are breathtaking.

Amoureuses is a small 1er Cru and it's spread over many growers. There is precious little of Drouhin's to go around. Please keep in mind that this is a very modestly sized parcel.
