2015 1er Cru Crausot Domaine François Lumpp
Slightly more macerated fruit on nose, plum and creme de mure thicker almost flatter. Sweeter, thicker fruit delivery, ripe cherry and plum, still good acid but overlaid by richer fruit weight, again a touch macerated, greater extract carries through on the finish. L&S (Nov 2016)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Very bright crimson – almost livid colour! Spicy aromatics – Some violets too. Very attractive. Broad ripe fruit on the front palate. Very sweet and pretty – forward. You could almost enjoy this tonight. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2017)
Cask sample. Seems more suppressed on the nose than their Clos Jus and A Vigne Rouge. The palate has an attractive blueberry and rose fragrance - it's charismatic and unusual. Lengthy and reasonably firm to finish, brightened by fresh, balanced acidity. Great core concentration of fruit on the finish - I suspect this will evolve into something more profound, although right now their other cuvées are more immediately enjoyable.

This is more aromatically complex still because even though it is compositionally similar to the Petit Marole there are more spice and Asian-style tea nuances present. The rich, full-bodied and mouth coating flavors exhibit good power and plenty of punch on the concentrated, intense and equally refined finale that, despite the excellent size and weight, retains its focus. This is excellent and worth your interest. 2020+ Rating: 90-93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Dec 2016)
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.
