A stunning bouquet of raspberries, rose petals, blood orange and sweet soil tones, deftly framed by a subtle touch of new oak, introduces Mugnier's 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses, a medium to full-bodied, supple and expansive wine framed by filigree tannins and racy acids, exemplifying the ideal of intensity without weight. Long and precise, this isn't as structured as the 2016 or 2015 renditions, and it will be open for business sooner. But the 2017 Amoureuses looses very little by comparison with those two brilliant wines.
