About

Product Description:

"Anne-Sophie Dubois is part of a young generation of rising star vignerons in Beaujolais. From her 8 hectare estate in the heart of Fleurie, Anne-Sophie incorporates stylistic cues from her winemaking experience in Volnay that yield an expression of Gamay that has depth, texture, and aromatic complexity. She farms organically and in the cellar prefers to stay as much out of the way as possible. She refrains from using new oak, instead opting for cement vats and neutral oak casks for fermentation and aging. The resulting wines are full of fruit, finesse and great balance." -Importer

"What can be more pleasurable than a fresh, crisp Fleurie, maybe slightly cooled and allowed to warm in your glass. Not much, especially when it comes from talented Anne-Sophie Dubois. She just has the right approach to winemaking – adhering to traditional methods of vinification and allowing her Fleurie to "sing." I tasted two recent releases from Anne-Sophie and, like previous wines, they are a) difficult to pronounce and b) absolutely delicious. My one regret is that I have not yet found the time to visit the domaine, but I will address that next time I am in the region." -Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
