Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "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. (WK)" 96 points John Gilman "The bouquet wafts from the glass in a youthful, red fruity blend of cherries, strawberries, a touch of sweet beetroot, mustard seed, cocoa powder, a gorgeous base of soil tones, vanillin oak and a topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is refined, full-bodied and intensely sappy at the core, with stunning transparency and grip, suave, seamless tannins and a very long, tangy and impeccably balanced finish. (JG)"

About Jacques-Frederic Mugnier
In 1985, when Frédéric Mugnier took over his family’s domaine in Chambolle-Musigny, his family had been working with longtime vineyard tenants and sold their grapes to négociants, leaving the Mugniers out of touch with their terroirs. Frédéric set to change all that. By implementing sustainable farming practices far and above the norm and by building a new winery, he has renewed the prestige to the vineyards and elevated the quality of the wines. And by finally seeing through the end of the Faiveley family’s long-term lease of Clos de la Maréchale, he also tripled the Mugnier holdings to 14 hectares, making him a substantially more serious contender in the appellation.
In the cellars, Frédéric has moved away from the burly style of Pinot Noirs that were in vogue in the 1990s. Instead, he de-stems 100% of his fruit, seeks traditional fermentations on native yeasts, uses a maximum of 25% new oak, and bottles his Pinot Noirs unfined and unfiltered. With the freshness and focus he achieves, it’s no wonder his wines now enjoy full unicorn status.
