François Lumpp is the best producer in Givry, equally adept at producing stylish reds and whites. This amazing Pinot comes from a parcel of 1.2 hectares to the west of the village. Half of the vines are very young, but you wouldn’t know it in this sweet, textured, mineraletched wine that wouldn’t look out of place in Volnay. 2018-25 Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 94 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com(Jan 2016)
There is a mild veneer of wood setting off a ripe but cool nose of red and blue pinot fruit along with background notes of plum and warm earth. There is notably good richness to the relatively fullbodied flavors that possess good length on the seductively textured and beautifully well-balanced finale. 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.
