92-94 points/'Sweet spot/Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .32 ha parcel). An elegant, pure and even spicier nose flashes notes of plum, red currant, sandalwood and hints of exotic tea. The sleek, intense, delicious and overtly mineral-driven middle weight flavors possess an even more refined palate impression before terminating in a velvety, mouth coating and impressively long finish where the only reproach is a touch of warmth. Lovely juice. Drink: 2030+. (Jan 2022)"

Once again, from John's article in View From the Cellar: "François Bertheau also owns a third of a hectare of vines in les Amoureuses, and deservedly so, this is probably today his most famous wine. The Amoureuses chez Bertheau is also raised in the same twenty percent new oak as the blended Premier Cru and Charmes bottlings, so all three of the premier crus chez Bertheau are first and foremost, wines that reflect their underlying terroirs and new oak is only here in a subordinate role. François Bertheau’s les Amoureuses is always an outstanding wine and one of the very best examples of this beautiful terroir produced in Burgundy."
