Anne-Sophie Dubois is part of a new generation of rising star vignerons in Beaujolais. Based in the heart of Fleurie, Anne-Sophies' wines epitomize delicacy and finesse, with a style and approach aligned with the Gamay grown in the area. Having learned winemaking in Volnay, she draws from her experience there to elegant wines; full of depth and aromatic complexity, and without the over-extraction of fruit.
In addition to a Beaujolais blanc, Anne-Sophie produces three additional cuvées, the most accessible wine being the Paso Doublé Gamay, which is labeled as Bourgogne Rouge and meant to be enjoyed upon release. Her other two wines, l’Alchemiste and Clepsydre, exhibit considerable aromatic complexity, depth, and nuance on the palate. She refrains from using new oak, and prefers to utilize cement vats and larger neutral oak casks for fermentation and aging. The resulting wines are renditions of gamay abound with fruit, finesse and exquisite balance.
‘Les Labourons’ (formerly known as ‘Clepsydre’) comes from Anne-Sophie’s organically farmed old vine parcel in Fleurie. Grapes are destemmed and aged for 13 months in neutral oak. This highly terror-reflective wine shows flavors of bright red fruit, tart cherries, and granite-influenced minerality, marked by gritty tannins and a dusty finish.
