2013 1er Cru Crausot Domaine François Lumpp
Very different fruit is plumper, dark berry, fragrant and generous, touch floral (rose hip). On the palate the wine is also more generous, sappy, black fruit, juicy balancing acidity, elegant and long. L&S (Dec 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.
A subtle touch of wood frames notably ripe but attractively airy and very fresh aromas of black cherry, plum, cassis and spice elements. There is excellent richness and volume to the tension-filled and wonderfully textured middle weight flavors that are also supported by a phenolically mature tannic spine, all wrapped in a firm and very long finish that is just a bit more structured. Fine quality here in an ageworthy package. 2020+ Rating: 91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jan 2015)

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.
