Anne Sophie Dubois Fleurie 'l'Alchimiste' 2017

Champagne native Anne-Sophie Dubois is shaking up the viticultural scene in Beaujolais, alongside a young group of fellow winemakers. Dubois farms her eight hectares in Fleurie all organically, using a hands-off approach in the winery and favoring classic vinification over Beaujolais-style carbonic. Her 2017 ‘l’Alchimiste’ shows flavors of dark and red fruits, wet stones, and herbs, with a distinct minerality creating a serious sense of place.

Gamay

The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
