François Lumpp is, without hesitation, the best producer in Givry. Givry is a small, somewhat overlooked appellation of Burgundy that offers high quality wines with incredible value. If François Lumpp were based in the Côte d’Or as opposed to Givry, the wines would sell at twice the price.

Expert review

Rich, ripe blackberry and slightly jubey red berries, licorice and plum. This is showing the warmth of the vintage with its decadence and sweet profile. A perfect pairing to pigeon or a charcuterie board full of the good stuff!
