2018 Givry Rouge 1er Cru “A Vigne Rouge”

François Lumpp

The 2018 has been hailed by one Burgundian négociant as the greatest Burgundy vintage since 1947. While I’m sure many vignerons will take issue with such a bold claim, there is no quibbling over the fact that the 2018 vintage has produced Pinot Noirs of exceptional quality and richness. With its primarily southern exposure and limestone soils, the A Vigne Rouge vineyard is ideally situated to extract the most from this historically warm vintage, and François’s heady, spicy version is about as opulent as red Burgundy gets. Do you have childhood memories of eating a bowlful of ripe berries on a hot summer day, juice running down your chin? Here’s the grownup version. You might want to consider a bib.

About Burgundy

map of 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.

Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
