2011 1er Cru à Vigne Rouge Domaine François Lumpp
|Vineyard||à Vigne Rouge|
The biggest of the 2011s, and it is impressvely broad. Very damson fruit when young, it is rounding to an impressive richness. L&S (Jan 2013)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Here too a kiss of wood frames the spicy and ripe aromas of dark berry fruit and earth aromas. There is outstanding richness to the relatively concentrated medium weight flavors that deliver fine depth on the impressively long finish. In much the same fashion as the 2012 version, this is unusually good for such young vines. 2017+ Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Oct 2013)
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.
