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.
Soft wood sets off notes of apple and citrus along with subtle floral nuances. There is good punch to the intense and well-detailed middle weight flavors that possess solid persistence and good if not special depth. This should drink well young if desired. 2017+ Rating: 88-90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2015)
