'Outstanding'/91-93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .32 ha parcel). As is typically the case, this is the spiciest wine in the range with its combination of fennel, exotic tea and sandalwood hints adding nuance to the essence of red currant and violet scents. The lacy and strikingly textured medium weight flavors exude class and grace on the generous yet precise and stony finish that is less obviously austere. Lovely and understated and a wine that could be approached after only 3 to 4 years of keeping. Drink: 2029+. (Jan 2023)"

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."
