The Wine

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate : " The finest wine I have ever tasted from this important estate is the 2019 Givry 1er Cru A Vigne Rouge, a striking cuvée that wafts from the glass with aromas of cassis, plums, wild berries, sweet soil tones and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's bright and vibrant, with superb depth at the core and a long, penetrating finish. Pierre and Anne-Cécile Lumpp are now taking over the reins at this Côte Chalonnaise reference point, and the 2019 vintage confirms that they are building on the success of their parents, as it's the most brilliant I've ever tasted at this address. Farming is organic without certification, and many of the domaine's parcels have been replanted in the last couple of decades with superior vine material taken from Burgundy's best domaines—something that's essential if the Côte Chalonnaise is to make qualitative progress. In the winery, the Lumpp family eschews stylistic extremes in the cellar, fermenting destemmed fruit with temperature control and maturing their wines in barrels: 70% new for the reds and 30% new for the whites. As I've written, these bottles are a staple of France's best restaurants' wine lists for good reason; and the sumptuous, succulent and expressive 2019 vintage merits especially ardent pursuit."

 91-93 points Neal Martin, Vinous : "The 2019 Givry à Vigne Rouge 1er Cru has a high-toned, ripe and generous bouquet with kirsch, orange peel and redcurrant scents, one that appears to calm down and mellow with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with layers of fleshy red fruit, tender and refined with well-judged acidity and satisfying tension to keep everything fresh on the finish. This is an absolutely delightful Givry from Lumpp."

About the Wine Maker

Francois and Isabelle Lumpp own this frankly amazing small domaine in Givry south of Beaune and for the those in the know it's so much more than it AOP title. So often the collector and sommelier dismiss the wines of Givry vs their royal counterparts in Cote. Francois inherited his families vineyards in the late 1970s and then started his own label in 1991. He is focused entirely on the best premier cru sites of Givry. Givry so often confused with its more famous brother Gevry in the Cote d'Or but can produce stunning wines of structure and finesse, particularly when handled by Francois.
