    Anne-Sophie Dubois

    De Beaujolais begint langzaam maar zeker bekend te worden om haar serieus gestructureerde wijnen van de Gamay druif, zo ook de wijnen van Anne-Sophie. Haar wijngaarden liggen in Fleurie, waar de granieten bodems een prachtige expressie geven aan de wijn. Deze artisinale wijnmaakster maakt op haar acht hectare pure, diepe en licht complexe wijnen. 


    The 2015 Fleurie Les Cocottes comes from 40+-year-old vines and undergoes 100% carbonic maceration, then matured in oak casks over 5 months. It has an opulent bouquet with dark cherries and cassis, quite voluminous with fine delineation. The palate is sweet and fleshy, packed full of juicy red cherry and strawberry fruit that belies the structure evident on the finish. I would give this another 6-8 months in bottle before broaching this well made, delicious Fleurie.

    Two very fine Beaujolais wines from Anne-Sophie Dubois—nothing new there. She is based in Fleurie, although her family roots are actually in Champagne. Since 2007 she has tended eight hectares of vineyard from which she produces her "L'Alchemiste" and "Clepsydre" bottlings (their names are reminiscent of Maggie Harrison's labels at Antica Terra in Oregon, don't you think?) Her two 2015s capture the precocity of the warm growing season and entwine that with complexity and a subtle sense of rusticity, something of the wildness of the French countryside thanks to the garrigue-like scents. They are neither modern nor traditional styles of Beaujolais—rather they sit contentedly in between. Neil Martin 89/100
