2014 1er Cru Clos Jus Domaine François Lumpp
Spicy damson and sour cherry nose, fleshy open with some wood spice. Palate is less intense than Vigne Rouge, open knit, with cherry, damson scent good tannins nice acidity, but more ethereal, lighter delivery. L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Pale crimson. Light, pretty nose. Lots of fruit and flesh for the money. Not a long-distance runner but very charming indeed. Drinking range: 2016 - 2020 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
Planted in 1990, this east-facing vineyard lies to the north of the village and was historically planted with wheat. Showing ferrous notes and some grip, the wine is balanced, refined and subtle with clove spice, skilfully integrated (70%) new oak and nuanced tannins. 2018-25 Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Jan 2016)
There is enough reduction present to render the nose difficult to evaluate though there is good freshness to the silky and refined middle weight flavors that possess solid mid-palate density before terminating in a supple, indeed almost tender finish. This is a really lovely effort thanks to the impeccably good balance and fine-grained tannins that contribute to the overall sense of elegance. 2019+ Rating: 90-92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Oct 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.
