2013 1er Cru à Vigne Rouge Domaine François Lumpp
|Vineyard||à Vigne Rouge|
Darker more brooding backward nose, black cherry, damson, sinew and spice. Power and grip on the palate, amazing acidity, again dark and sinewy, intense and impressive. 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.
Here the nose is quite similar if perhaps not quite as elegant with good complexity to the plum, earth and dark currant aromas. There is a seductive mouth feel to the rich, vibrant and intense flavors thanks to the refined tannins that impart a dusty and moderately firm palate impression to the lingering and dusty finish. Excellent quality for such young vines and this is recommended. 2019+ 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.
