2014 Blanc Clos des Vignes Rondes Domaine François Lumpp
|Vineyard||Clos des Vignes Rondes|
Lovely intensity on nose of stony, toasty citrus, lemon and mineral. Palate has nice richness quite fat with fig and citrus, some creamy toasty oak, fresh, full, with nice intensity, broad decent length. L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2014 Givry Blanc Clos des Vignes Rondes has a gentle, lilting bouquet with white peach and almond scents, a slight steeliness that lends this tension and delineation. The palate is rounded on the entry. There is very good concentration here, rounded and lightly spiced in the mouth, although I would have liked just a little more mineralité to come through on the finish. Not bad overall however.

A ripe but cool nose features plenty of citrus influence along with green apple and soft floral hints. There is fine detail and energy to the medium weight flavors that exude a lovely minerality and salinity on the refreshing, clean and attractively persistent finale. 2018+ Rating: 88-91 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.
