Anne Sophie Dubois Fleurie L’alchimiste 2020


The name of this wine was inspired by the book ‘The Alchemist’ by Brazilian author Paulo Coelho and New York Times describe the core theme about finding one’s destiny. Sourced from 40+-year-old vines within the Lieu Dit. Anne-Sophie’s vineyards are some of the highest-elevation sites in Fleurie, which itself is one of the highest-elevation Cru Villages in Beaujolais. Just 35 hl/ha. Partial whole cluster fermentation. Aged for 10 months in a combination of vat & in a larger, seasoned oak barrels.Anne mentions she picks the site with the ‘deepest juice’ for this cuvee. Bottled unfined & unfiltered

“The Alchemist 2019: 100% whole bunches. Change: unlike previous vintages, the proportion of aging in barrels (old) is only 40%. The rest in concrete vats. 10 months elevage. This cuvée tastes very well as soon as the bottle is opened. The nose is open, the mouth straight. Definitely my best “Alchemist”!” – Anne Sophie Dubois

“Glistening ruby. Vibrant, spice-accented red and blue fruits and pungent flowers on the highly perfumed nose. Sappy and seamless in the mouth, the spine of juicy acidity adding energy to plush boysenberry and raspberry preserve flavors. Shows sharp definition and repeating florality on the persistent, gently tannic finish, which leaves sweet red fruit and smoky mineral notes behind” – 93 Points – Josh Raynolds – Vinous
