About This Wine

The La Brulee vineyard is only 0.76ha and around 20 years old. What it lacks in size and age, though, is more than made up for with the character it brings to the wines created from it.

The Francois Lumpp Givry Rouge 1er Cru La Brulee is a beautiful wine, with complex aromas and flavours of raspberry, spice and plum, and a wonderful structure and mouthfeel.

If you're looking for Burgundy Pinot Noir at premier cru level that screams quality without the (often) immense price tag, then it's really difficult to go past Francois Lumpp, as his wines regularly drink nicely upon release and improve remarkably well with age.

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.

Additional Info

From the Importer

“I buy as many bottles as I can from this Domaine every year. With prices rocketing for 1er Cru Burgundy these wines are so consistently good. If you haven’t tasted these wines they are modern, polished and frankly delicious. Francois and Isabelle Lumpp own this frankly amazing 9 hectare domaine in Givry and for the those in the know it’s so much more than it AOP title. So often the collector and sommelier dismiss the wines of Givry vs their royal counterparts in Cote d’Or. These are superstar wines that are simply ridiculous value for high quality red Burgundy. I first discovered Francois Lumpp’s wines via a ‘tip off’ from Mounir Saouma, owner of the iconic Lucien Le Moine wines of Burgundy.

Critic Reviews

Burghound

“Liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, plum and pretty spice nuances introduce succulent, even juicy, medium weight flavors that also conclude in a bitter cherry pit-inflected and youthfully finish that sufficiently firm to suggest that at least a few years of patience will be necessary” - 89-92 points, Alan Meadows (Burghound)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
