2010 1er Cru à Vigne Rouge Domaine François Lumpp
|Vineyard||à Vigne Rouge|
This one was not shown at the January tasting as it was not being bottled until March. From cask it was, as usual, the biggest and broadest of François' wines, but in 2010 all the work that they have done in this vineyard is really showing - there's more tension, so that behind the ripe plums and obvious weight there's a cherry-bright firmness and drive. Really quite exciting. Although it could be approached younger we'd advise drinking this 2015-2022+ L&S (May 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine François Lumpp
François and Isabelle Lumpp own this impeccable 16 hectare estate in Givry, a region which is so often over looked by Burgundy lovers and yet which is capable of producing wines of exceptional quality as well as value. François is a passionate viticulturalist and places great emphasis on making the wine in the vineyard.
He aims to pick at 'just ripe' rather than into overripe, and wants to make bright wines which are developed rather than masked by their time in barrel. Making the best wines in Givry, by some stretch, if he were in any other part of Burgundy he would be heralded as a super-star.
