2017 Domaine Comte Georges De Vogue Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses Premier Cru
One of the best Chambolle premiers crus of the vintage, this is another brilliant 2017 from François Millet.
The 2017 les Amoureuses was showing far more of its mineral side than the preceding two wines, but it too was more about its beautifully sappy fruit tones than the great terroir of Amoureuses at the time of my visit. The bouquet is certainly complex and will be quite promising, if its customary signature of soil returns, as the fruit elements of sappy black cherries and plums, dark chocolate, woodsmoke, gentle spice tones and vanillin oak is now nicely augmented by soil tones, but usually has even more terroir in its aromatic profile at this point in its evolution. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and has a lovely underlying chassis of structure, with a sappy core of fruit, fine-grained tannins and a long, focused and promising finish. This will be very good, but it could well be outstanding, but is hiding a bit right after its racking.
