Musky peony, brown spices, game, and ripe red berries on the nose of Chateau de Chambolle’s 2007 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses presage a palate performance of sweet, sumptuous, yet freshly juicy fruit, tinged with rose hip and spices; abundant inner-mouth florality; and savory, lightly-salted meat stock reduction. This deliciously decadent expression of its great site should be worth following for at least a decade but I suspect you’ll have trouble resisting its blandishments over the next several years. Richest and predictably deepest and most elegant among ||Frederic Mugnier’s 2008s – which I last tasted shortly before their March bottling – did not experience the exceptionally late malo-lactic transformation that characterized so many wines of that vintage. Yields were especially low thanks not only to vintage-typical millerandage, but – particularly in the case of Les Amoureuses – to the vines’ slow recovery from the shock of 2007 hail.||A Becky Wasserman Selection, Le Serbet; fax 011-333-80-24-29-70 Wine Advocate.June, 2010

In the heart of Chambolle, at the Château de Chambolle-Musigny, is Domaine Mugnier. The domaine has been in the Mugnier family since the late 1800s, and has grand cru holdings in Le Musigny and Bonnes Mares, premier cru holdings in Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses and Les Fuées, the monopole of Nuits-St Georges Clos de la Marechale and parcels of village Chambolle-Musigny. Much of the vineyard was leased out throughout the 20th century to Faiveley. The story of the the domaine in its current form begins with Frédéric Mugnier, who took over in 1985.

Frédéric Mugnier is one of Burgundy’s great winemakers. An engineer by training, and a philosopher by nature, he achieves a purity in his Pinot Noir that is peerless. 2005 & 2009 Le Musigny from Mugnier are arguably amongst the finest wines ever made, and his monopole of Clos de la Marechale in Nuits St Georges is one of the most elegant wines of the appellation. The wines are not as fleshy as those of his neighbour, Christophe Roumier, though there is an elegance and harmony to Mugnier’s wines that makes them one of the most complete expressions of Pinot Noir.
