François and Isabelle Lumpp own 9 hectares of Village and 1er Cru vineyards (6.5 hectares of Pinot and 1.5 hectares of Chardonnay) in Givry, in the north of the Côte Chalonnaise. The Domaine is famous for its Pinot but also for its whites which show that Givry is able to produce some great Chardonnays.
Givry, Côte Chalonnaise – France
Givry soils are from the Côte de Beaune strata package. The vineyards’ pebbly, yellowish to pink, sticky soil is developed from a combination of Givry marl and “red oolite” – these strata are from higher in the Jurassic geologic section than in any other involved in the Côte d’Or.
Isabelle and François own several Premier Cru vineyards, including Crausot, A Vigne Rouge and Clos du Cras for the Pinot and Petit Marole for the Chardonnay.
