Along with 'Clos Saint-Jacques' in Gevrey-Chambertin, 'Les Amoureuses' is Grand Cru level wine without the label. It is one of the most highly regarded Premier Cru sites in all of Burgundy, and justifiably so. 'Les Amoureuses' displays an intense delicacy that counters the muscularity of Bonnes-Mares and Le Musigny Grand Crus. In the hands of the highly technical and philosophical Mugnier, more than a wine, this is an experience. 

Notes from Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier:

"Our approach to both viticulture and wine-making is aimed at preserving in the wines the purest expression of Nature with minimal interference from technological practices. We have a pragmatic approach to viticulture and we favor hand work and preventative protection methods in the vineyard. The purpose is not to eradicate pests and diseases but to preserve or  restore a rich and active ecosystem.

With healthy and ripe grapes grown on the greatest terroirs, wine-making only has to be kept simple and respectful."
