Anne Sophie Dubois Current Releases
Fleurie `Les Cocottes`
Starting with the 2015 vintage, Anne-Sophie has decided to release a different side of her Fleurie. Up until then, all of her Fleuries were 100% destemmed and fermented in a Burgundian-style. In stark contrast to her usual style, she is making Les Cocottes with 100% whole cluster and using carbonic maceration. It is released the Spring after the vintage and is intended to be fruit driven and drunk early & often.
The label was drawn by Anne-Sophie herself. (She's really into art.)
L'Alchimiste is named after the Paulo Coelho novel, a book about pursuing ones dreams and learning life lessons along the way.
100% destemmed, L'Alchimiste is a selection of vines over forty years of age. It is aged for around 15 months in a combination of cement and a range of different sized neutral oak barrels. Anne-Sophie bottles her wines unfined and unfiltered.
"Clepsydre" is the French word for water clock, a time measuring instrument developed in ancient Egypt. She named this cuvée Clepsydre because, as her bottling of her oldest vines and a slightly different elevage, it requires patience in bottle to show its full potential.
This cuvée comes from a high density planted vineyard with vines of over sixty years of age. It is 100% destemmed and aged for around 13 months in 228L neutral oak barrels.
