There is even better aromatic complexity with the red and black pinot fruit adding breadth in the form of stone and spice nuances, both of which are also present on the suave, sophisticated and strikingly refined flavors. There is good mid-palate concentration and excellent length to the moderately austere and somewhat linear finish. This will require all of a decade to reveal its full potential. Tasted: Apr 15, 2013.

The clear ruby-colored Joseph Drouhin 2011 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Amoureuses exhibits a pure nose with rounded and sensual redcurrant and crushed strawberry fruit that speak of Amoureuses. This is much more satisfying than some of its peers. There is good depth to the aromatics, voluminous strawberry fruit. The palate is compact on the entry but there is impressive balance from start to finish. Quite firm tannins, good depth, gritty in texture and not silky in the mouth, but there is fine persistency. There is potential here. Tasted June 2014. eRobertParker.com.August, 2014
