"Even in this charming vintage, the 2019 Givry 1er Cru Clos Jus is built for the cellar, unwinding in the glass with notes of plums, raspberries, woodsmoke, spices, orange peel and sweet soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, layered and vibrant, it's concentrated and tightly wound, concluding with 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."
