2019 Domaine Anne Sophie Dubois Fleurie l’Alchemiste
Anne-Sophie is very much a beacon of light in Beaujolais, and has received notable critical acclaim. Her holdings now extend over eight hectares within the Fleurie Cru, the fruit is all organically farmed, with vines over sixty years old. This is bright, fruit forward with just a touch of whole bunch to add tension and structure.
'Sourced from 40+-year-old vines within the Lieu Dit. Anne-Sophie’s “L’Alchimiste” Anne-Sophie’s vineyards are some of the highest-elevation sites in Fleurie, which itself is one of the highest-elevation Cru Villages in Beaujolais. Just 35 hl/ha. Partial whole cluster fermentation. Aged for 10 months in a larger, seasoned oak barrels. Anne mentions she picks the site with the ‘deepest juice’ for this cuvee. Bottled unfined & unfiltered.' - Suppiler Notes
