Tasting notes for the Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" 2011 - Joseph Drouhin (Crate)

  • EYE: The robe of this Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" from Joseph Drouhin reveals a deep and brilliant ruby hue, emphasizing the intensity of the 2011 vintage. Its clarity, coupled with purple reflections, provides a captivating visual experience.
  • NOSE: This wine unveils a complex and delicate aromatic bouquet. Aromas of red fruits, such as cherry and raspberry, harmoniously intertwine with subtle floral notes of rose and violet. Light nuances of wood, evoking vanilla and cedar, add an additional dimension.
  • MOUTH: The Chambolle-Musigny convices us with its finesse and elegance. The tannins, of great delicacy, offer a silky texture. The freshness of red fruits lingers, accompanied by subtle mineral accents. The balance between vivacity and roundness gives this wine a harmonious and well-integrated structure.


In short: The Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Amoureuses" 2011, available here in a wooden case of 12 bottles, is a refined expression of the Burgundian terroir. Its intense robe, complex nose, and elegant palate make it a fascinating wine to enjoy. You can discover it today or wait for another dozen years. Pair this wine with a beef fillet in morel crust, pan-seared scallops on a bed of celeriac puree, or a cheese platter accompanied by fresh figs.

Famous Beaune wine estate


The Drouhin family has been working in the vineyard for more than 130 years. In 1880, Joseph Drouhin founded his very first wine trading house in Beaune. A few years later, his son Maurice turned this little business into a bonafide wine estate, with the addition of a vineyard next to the main building. Then, in 1957, Joseph’s grandson Robert bought many more grapevines as well as a fully equipped oenological laboratory. Managed by Laurence Jobard, the first woman oenologist in Burgundy, this lab allowed them to experiment a lot (turning the estate into one of the first to adopt reasoned viticulture, for example).

Thanks to his research, Robert laid the first brick of what would ultimately become the philosophy of the Domaine Drouhin. Since 1990, the estate has gone full biodynamics and the motto now is to solve natural problems using natural solutions. Plowing is done using a horse, fertilizers are completely natural, yields are voluntarily low, grapevines are respected, harvesting is done by hand… Everything here revolves around the well-being of the vineyard, which of course shows in the final products.

The Drouhin style gives birth to wines that are a balanced combination of harmony, smoothness and strength. The estate’s pursuit of excellence leaves nobody indifferent. Today, the Domaine Joseph Drouhin owns 73 hectares of vineyard, located in the Côte de Nuits, Côte de BeauneCôte Chalonnaise and Chablisien. It is one of the biggest estates in Burgundy, producing more than 90 different appellations (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir), with many of them being premiers crus or even grands crus.
