2020 Anne Sophie Dubois Fleurie Les Labourons

Anne Sophie Dubois is very much one of the rising vigneron stars of Beaujolais, with arguably some of the most glowing reviews of Fleurie in recent times. Originally from Champagne (she is the 7th generation of Dubois winemakers) she passionately claims she is a grower first, winemaker second. Her family purchased the vineyard in 1992 and incredibly she took over full responsibility of running the Domaine in 2006 when she was just 23 years old.Her Domaine has been certified Organic since 2019 (all of which is inside the Lieu Dit of Les Labourons). High density plantings (8,000 to 10,000 vines per hectare) on some pretty serious slopes, some parcels exceeding 30%. Poor Granitic soils, classic to the appellation producing yields on average 35 hl/hct. She vinifies a large percentage of her wines with destemmed grapes, using whole bunch/carbonic techniques for ‘seasoning’, the exception being her fun ‘Cocottes’ bottling.

About the wine

Tasting notes

100% Gamay from strictly the best fruit on the old vine parcel of Les Labourons. This is very Burgundian and is as good as anything else you'll find in Beaujolais. A pristine, elegant and beautifully balanced Cru Beaujolais from the Fleurie with aromas and flavours of strawberry, cherry, violets, lavender, graphite and a seam of fine minerality.

The Grape

Gamay

Gamay is a red grape variety that has a home in Beaujolais, just south of Burgundy in France. It's a floral, fruity and gently rustic light bodied red that is very food friendly and quite similar to Pinot Noir. Expect aromas and flavours of pink rose, violets, blossoms, pomegranate, wild berries, fresh earth and tea. The best expressions are usually made from grapes grown in 10 different cru's and are a fantastic and affordable alternative to high end red Burgundy.
