2012 1er Cru Clos Jus Domaine François Lumpp
Rich again, but is this even more lifted that the Crausot? Certainly also superb. Juicy and appetising as well as also being deep, full of balance and supple length. L&S (Jan 2014)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified 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.
The 2012 Givry 1er Cru Clos Jus has a very elegant refined bouquet with succulent blackberry and cranberry scents that are beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a beguiling sense of focus and symmetry and it builds gracefully toward a grainy, saline finish that begs another sip.

Dark, savoury and yet quite ripe – almost fruitcake-like. Moderate tannins, spicy and tight length. Lovely oak spice right at the last. 2015-2024 Rating: 16.5 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2014)
Reduction presently dominates the nose but there is very good density to the intense and solidly complex medium weight flavors that possess plenty of structure coating dry extract and imparts a velvety mouth feel to the firm, delicious and impressively long finish. The tannins are phenolically mature and this too should amply reward 6 to 8 years of cellar time. 2019+ Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Oct 2013)
