About This Wine
Le Pied du Clou (the foot of the nail) is a monopole from Givry legend, Francois Lumpp - meaning he is the sole owner of all the vines in the vineyard.
It's one of Lumpp's denser, more concentrated Pinots, with prominent dark fruits, and spicy overtones. Medium-weight but full of dark flesh with good length.
As ever with Francois Lumpp, an excellent value premier Cru.
About Francois Lumpp
Having inherited his family's 9ha of vineyards in the 1970s, it was probably only a matter of time before Francois Lumpp started his own label, which he did in 1991. Since that time, his wines have received much praise, showing that the Cote Chalonnaise in Burgundy's south can produce Pinot Noir of not only exceptional quality, but also amazing value, particularly when compared to the more prestigious vineyards of the Cote d'Or to the north.
Lumpp grows both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in his vineyards, crafting a range of wines, most at premier cru level. While the whites are whole-bunch pressed, the reds are all destemmed, with all reting in barrel for around 12 months before release.
