About Anne-Sophie Dubois Les Cocottes Fleurie
Anne-Sophie Dubois Les Cocottes Fleurie was started when Anne-Sophie 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.
About Anne-Sophie Dubois, the Winemaker
Anne Sophie Dubois is part of a young generation of winemakers changing Beaujolais. Born and raised in Champagne, she caught the wine bug early. Anne Sophie spent her formative years learning the ropes in Burgundy. (Far from the usual story of winemakers in Beaujolais.) The economics of vineyard ownership in France have made many regions unapproachable for a young vigneron. Especially those without a considerable amount of wealth. Beaujolais is one of the few where that is not yet the case. Anne Sophie fell in love with Gamay and decided that Fleurie was where she wanted to call home.
About the Winery
Her domaine resides on eight hectares in the heart of Fleurie. The vines are now farmed by organic means. Most of her plots are already of considerable age, her oldest vines are 60+ years old. Fleurie has provided Anne Sophie a canvas of old vines and granitic soils. Here she brings to the table a strong commitment to working the soil, staying out of the way in the winery, and a style that favors a Burgundian approach to vinification.
