PRODUCER
The village of Givry arguably produces the best red wines in the Côte Chalonnaise – and François Lumpp arguably makes the best wine in the village. What sets him apart still further, however, is his skill with white wines, which so often play second fiddle here. Both Chardonnay and Pinot, in his hands, offer a purity that would make many Côte d’Or producers jealous.

VINEYARD
François has replanted his domaine over the last two decades, using close spacing and low yields to gain exceptional depth of flavour. The Clos du Cras Long is a very well situated, southeast-facing vineyard with a high limestone content (‘cras’ being related to ‘craie’, or chalk). The grapes were picked by hand into small boxes.

WINERY
After sorting, the grapes were destemmed, the must given a cold maceration followed by temperature-controlled fermentation, and the wine then aged in barrel, with around forty percent new oak.

TASTE
A vibrant Givry of real power and definition, showing purity of bright berry/ cherry fruit and very well integrated oak.

PRESS
“A spicy and markedly ripe nose features notes of plum, black cherry, earth and a top note of menthol. The appealingly textured, velvety and entirely seductive middle weight flavors possess both good power and plenty of mouth coating dry extract, all wrapped in an impeccably well- balanced and persistent finish. This powerful yet refined and highly complex effort should amply reward 7 to 10 years of cellar time.” – 92 points, Burghound, issue 56
