Tasted at the Chambolle Amoureuses vertical in London, the 2002 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru les Amoureuses is a stunning expression of the vineyard from the Drouhin team, perhaps the best vintage of the decade? It is noticeably deep in color, more so than other 2002 recently tasted. The bouquet is wonderful with very fine delineation, pure and sensual red berry fruit laced with subtle sous-bois and wet limestone scents. The palate is crisp and precise with a fine bead of acidity. There is a sense of energy and vigor here that derives from the special terroir of Amoureuses, hints of oyster shell lining the mineral-rich finish that just leaves you begging for more once the wine has departed. This is quite fantastic. (3/2016)
