Anne-Sophie Dubois Fleurie "Les Labourons" 2020
Anne-Sophie Dubois Fleurie "Les Labourons" cuvée benefits from a strict selection of the best grapes of the year. The wine retains a fresh and boisterous fruit profile, yet is uncommonly structured and focused. Intense yet supremely elegant with a velvety texture and fine-point tannins. Abundant juicy blackberry and strawberry flavours with streaks of lavender and the unique granitic mineral profile of Fleurie. We absolutely adore it; what more can be asked of Gamay?
Fun Fact: The bottle label is designed by Anne-Sophie herself!
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 came from a specially selected organic-certified vineyard, chosen for its small grains among the 18 plots of the estate, that sits at an altitude of 380 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 tuns for 10 months, no filtering or fining before bottling.
