Overview of the Wine
In the late 1970s, François Lumpp and his brother inherited their family property, located in the Côte Chalonnaise. In 1991 he founded his own label with his wife, Isabelle. Using sélection massale cuttings, François developed his domaine around Givry's bestpremier cru sites, which, as in most of the Côte d’Or, are situated on the mid to upper level slopes of the rolling hillsides. The Lumpp domaine is an especially good fit here at KLWM because it embodies exactly what we look for in Burgundy: a true vigneron in a specific village. Every wine François makes is from Givry, from vineyards that he planted and nurtured himself–something that is exceedingly rare in Burgundy today, and will become more and more so over time.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Every wine Francois Lumpp makes is from Givry, from vineyards that he planted and nurtured himself–something that is exceedingly rare in Burgundy today, and will become more and more so over time. An acknowledged leader of the appellation, his greatest achievement is harnessing the finesse we look for in Burgundian Pinot Noir.
92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Givry 1er Cru A Vigne Rouge is very pretty, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet of raspberries, rich spice, citrus zest and dried flowers. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, velvety and bright, with terrific energy and a generous core of ripe fruit that conceals its fine, chalky tannins.
