Wine Critic Reviews for 2009 Pousse D'Or Chambolle Musigny Les Amoureuses

(Domaine Pousse d'Or Chambolle-Musigny "Les Amoureuses" 1er 1er Cru Red) A spicy, pure and expansive nose features a ripe mix of red currant, blue berry, plum and violet aromas that slide seamlessly into rich, generous and well-detailed mineral-inflected flavors that are shaped by very firm but phenolically mature tannins. There is an impeccable sense of balance to the serious, firm and mouth coating finish. This stylish and classy effort should repay well 12 to 15 years of cellar time. (Drink starting 2021).

The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses comes across as huge and super concentrated. There is plenty of textural richness and depth, but the wine is going to need a lot of time to shed its baby fat. The impeccable, textured finish makes me hopeful elegance will develop here, but today the Amoureuses is a bit clunky. The estate gave the Amoureuses 50% new oak. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034.

This is a stunning set of wines from Patrick Landager. The vintage yielded a set of super-sized, big wines that may shock some readers for their sheer intensity. These are among some of the most backward 2009s I tasted and will require considerable patience. The estate now farms a total of 19 hectares, which includes the vineyards Landager acquired when he bought Domaine Moine-Hudelot a few years back. In 2009 Landager started harvesting on September 22, when most people were already finished picking. Cuvaison started with 5-6 days of cold maceration and lasted a total of three weeks with one punchdown in the morning and a second in the afternoon. The wines spent 12-15 months in oak (roughly 30% new) on their fine lees with no rackings until they were prepared for bottling, which took place with no fining or filtration. (Note: the Chambolle saw 50% new oak). All of the 2009s were bottled in early February 2010.

Bright medium red. Restrained aromas of raspberry, strawberry and sweet underbrush. Supple, sweet red fruit shows good breadth and richness and the ripeness of the year. Stuffed with fruit and long and ripe on the tannic finish, but I don't get that ineffable Amoureuses lift and perfume. This seemed more vibrant in barrel a year ago. The 2010 version should take this bottling to another level. This was the first year that Patrick Landanger had full control of the Moine-Hudelot vineyards he purchased in 2008.

Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
