ADD

Along with his premier cru A Vigne Rouge vines, Clos du Cras Long is François Lumpp’s favorite terroir. Something about the (oxymoronic?) airiness of the clay in this lieu-dit makes for consistently interesting wines. In 2015, despite a small yield due to the drought, Lumpp harvested such healthy grapes that the sorting process was a breeze. This purity of fruit materializes in the wine, and for those of you who tried the 2014 on Dixon’s advice that it was “pure pleasure,” take note: François says the density and structure are even better this vintage. –Emily Spillmann
