Anne-Sophie Dubois Fleurie "Les Cocottes", 2016

25.00

Anne-Sophie Dubois is part of a new generation of rising star vignerons in Beaujolais. The economics of vineyard ownership in France have made many regions unapproachable for a young vigneron without a considerable amount of wealth. Beaujolais is one of the few where that is not yet the case. Anne-Sophie fell in love with Gamay and decided that Fleurie was where she wanted to call home. Her domaine is composed of eight hectares in the heart of Fleurie that are now organically farmed. Most of her plots are already of considerable age, her oldest are 60+ years old. Anne-Sophie’s 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. This Gamay is fresh and energetic in style, showing excellent clarity and lift to the fresh raspberry, cherry and spice cake aromas. Palate-staining red fruit and floral flavors are sharpened by a suggestion of white pepper. Depth is played off of vivacity with this wine, which finishes very long and nervy, leaving a sweet red berry note behind.
