Decanter (Tim Atkin) 94 points! "Generally the most tannic and backward of François Lumpp's superb line-up of reds, this comes from a parcel on red and white clays. There's plenty of texture and weight here, but it's supported by freshness, fine oak and layers of red plum and strawberry fruit."
Wine Advocate (Dr. William Kelley) 92+ points! "The best candidate for cellaring this year is the 2017 Givry 1er Cru A Vigne Rouge, a serious wine that unwinds in the glass with notes of cherries, red berries and potpourri. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with good concentration, tangy acids and an elegantly powdery tannic chassis, concluding with a long, precise finish."
Allen Meadows 90-93 points! "Reductive notes are sufficiently prominent to override the fruit today. Otherwise there is exceptionally good richness and density to the opulent and seductive flavors that are supported by dense but buried tannins on the balanced and sappy finish. This is also most impressive and should age effortlessly."
