95 points John Kapon (Vintage Tastings): "A 2001 Mugnier Chambolle-Musigny Les Amoureuses was Mugnier and Amoureuses at its finest, just stunning. 2001 is another vintage that’s drinking oh so well at the moment, but I think they might last longer than people think and border on the best of other vintages for years to come. Delicate with a perfect core of mixed red fruits and strong, clean wood qualities, the ’01 went down way too easily. I can’t help mentioning every time I have an Amoureuses its true definition – two female lovers. (9/6/11)"
93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "This first-rate effort is approaching its peak with a positively gorgeous nose of spice, mature and highly complex secondary fruit aromas that evidence obvious stone hints that continue onto the elegant, pure and precise medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a silky and strikingly persistent finish. This is a stunning, and entirely classic, Amoureuses that is classy and exceptionally stylish. Note that I have had a fair amount of bottle variation with this wine and while it's never poor, it ranges from very good to what I have described above. Note further that for my taste this has arrived at its peak though it should be capable of holding here for another decade. Drink: Now+. (Jul 2015)"
93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "Medium red. Captivating aromas of raspberry, minerals, coffee and mint. Fat and rich, with a pungent raspberry flavor and lovely texture and sweetness for the year. Completely different in palate feel from the Bonnes-Mares and a step up in lushness from the foregoing samples. Finishes with fine, broad tannins and excellent grip and length. A beauty. (Mar/Apr 2004)"
