Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: "The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses opens in the glass with notes of cherries, sweet berries, rose petals, plums, raw cocoa and spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, it's supple and succulent, with a pretty core of fruit and fine, powdery tannins, concluding with a saline finish. Roblot produced three barrels, and we tasted all of them." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
About the winery:
Benjamin's history is like a conquest of his own inheritance. He first started his career in the aviation industry as a designer but never forgot his grandfather's legacy. From 2016, and after studying agriculture and oenology, little by little, Benjamin progressively retrieved plots from his grandfather's vineyard, one lease after another. Patient and determined, Benjamin works now on several plots Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru, Bonnes-Mares and Echezeaux. He manages his vines very meticulously, and his winemaking varies according to the vintages, making outstanding wines.
