The Wine

This vineyard has south eastern sun exposure and sits at 740 feet above sea level. A micro Monopole owned by Francois, located just behind the winery in the centre of the appellation.

Grapes are destemmed, fermented in open top tanks. No racking after pressing and placed in Taransaud barrels of which 70% new. Anne-Cecile (daughter) mentions that you can hardly see the toasting in the barrels it so light. No racking during elevage, 12 months.

"The 2019 vintage is the most brilliant I've ever tasted at this address." William Kelley, The Wine Advocate July 2021


"An equally ripe yet slightly cooler nose features notes of red cherry coulis, raspberry, plum and a touch of earth. The sleek, delicious and much more finely textured flavors possess notably better depth and excellent persistence on the dusty and youthfully austere finale.  This is also quite good and worth considering".  90-92/100 Burghound, Outstanding

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.
