My first Faiveley Amoureuses, and it was a treat. Really pretty nose that tells you right away you're in Chambolle. All flowers and sweet and bright red fruit. Initially this had a darker-fruited palate but with time the sweet took on a sweeter, redder character. Really tasty stuff!

Dinner in LA (b.o.s - Los Angeles, CA): this needed time. Thank god for matt’s amazing decanter (you NEED to see it). After about 90 minutes in the decanter, the dark berries and spice notes really built up and fleshed out. The palate had this awesome grip to it, too…a real presence. Loved how the spice notes built up with time…I can only imagine how wonderful this will become with patience.

Decanted and tasted over several hours. Musty nose on initial opening transformed after an hour or so in the decanter: barnyard funk, game, leather, smoke, and eventually some dark cherry notes. Mouth-watering acidity mellowed over the course of the evening, giving way to darker fruit with hints of tart cherry. Overall, an interesting and reasonably tasty bottle that really is more of an intellectual curiosity than a sensory delight.
