Description

Anne-Sophie Dubois Fleurie "L’Alchimiste" 2020

Anne-Sophie Dubois Fleurie "L'Alchimiste" is bright and fresh. Red and dark berry nose on a violet floral background. The dry and light-bodied palate has a vibrant acidity and very fine tannins. Juicy strawberry, blueberry and blackberry flavours with notes of earthy spice and black tea.

100% Gamay. The estate's vines are all located on steep slopes (exceeding 30% in some plots) at Les Labourons, AOC Fleurie. The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards with an altitude of approcximately 400 metres and has a WSW exposure. These factors enable slow maturation, allowing good conservation of acidity and favouring aromatic complexity.

Manual picking and meticulous sorting of the grapes. Working by gravity from harvest to pressing to respect the bunches. Fermentation by indigenous yeasts and vinification with whole bunches. The wines ages in wooden barrels and vats for 10 months, no filtering or fining before bottling.
