Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" 2017 Francois Bertheau
Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" 2017 is a French fine wine from the Burgundy region produced by Francois Bertheau. The main purpose of this company is to produce wines that best express the territoriality, which is why we work in compliance with the terroir with minimal intervention in the vineyard where the yields are very low, no manipulation in the cellar, minimum use of new wood for aging . All Francois Bertheau wines ferment in steel or cement, with the exception of the base product which partly ferments in wooden barrels, all of which are then refined in oak barrels of which only 20% is new wood. This Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" 2017 is one of the spearheads of the company, it comes from the 0.32 hectare Les Amoureuses vineyard where 47-year-old plants grow on a mainly limestone marl. Here is the vineyard that speaks, which expresses through the wine all the territoriality and the original hints of the grape: the wine appears at the sight of an intense and bright ruby red color, with violet reflections. The nose is distinctly intense and recalls the aromaticity of the Chambolle Musigny terroir with a bouquet of rose and violet petals, spicy hints, small red fruits such as wild strawberry and blackberries. In the mouth we find the aromatic complexity of the nose, spices and fruit harmonize in the mouth with a velvety tannin for a dense and very long sip. A majestic, complex, refined wine that can undoubtedly be categorized within the classical school of Chambolle Musigny where the predominant element that characterizes these wines is finesse, elegance and aroma.
