Francois Lumpp Givry 1er Cru Petit Marole 2017
Francois and Isabelle Lumpp own this frankly amazing 9 hectares domaine in Givry and for the those in the know it’s so much more than it AOC title. Francois inherited his families vineyards in the late 1970’s 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 Pinot Noir of structure and finesse, particularly when handled by Francois.
“This too somehow manages to be both notably ripe yet cool, elegant and airy with its combination of earth, essence of red currant and discreet spice nuances. The vibrant and well-detailed flavors are not especially concentrated but I very much like the beautifully refined mouth feel as well as the lingering and complex finale. In sum this is most impressive for such young vines”
