2015 Givry Rouge 1er Cru “Clos du Cras Long”

François Lumpp

2015 Givry <i>Rouge 1er Cru</i> “Clos du Cras Long” François Lumpp - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
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.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.
