Domaine François Lumpp, “A Vigne Rouge” Givry 1er Cru Rouge, Burgundy, France, 2018
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
This bottling contains a lot of ripe fruit (they are in southern Burgundy, after all), but it also has a sheen, sharpness, and smartness, possibly due to this parcel’s high limestone and marl content—a unique identity you would expect from a unique cru.
92 Points - James Suckling
Lots of ripe blackberry and strawberry with some walnut and bark on the nose. Full-bodied and chewy with intense fruit and tannins. Needs time to soften. Rather extracted, but shows structure and generates interest. Try after 2023.
