Clepsydre is now known as Les Labourons, taking its name from the lieu-dit in Fleurie where many of her plots form an amphitheater of sorts. This wine celebrates the very finest and oldest selections of the vineyard, and as such is made in a true Burgundian fashion - 100% de-stemmed and vinified completely in 228L barrels. This is the most age-worthy, deep wine and rewards time in the cellar or a decanter. Dark-fruited and unctuous, truly a Grand Cru of Beaujolais if ever there were one!

A native of Champagne, Anne-Sophie fell in love with Gamay and sought out old-vine vineyards where she could essentially get out of the way of the wine practically making itself. Her time in Burgundy gave her the knowledge to find perfect ripeness, and her wines all carry great soul and purity. Above all, delicacy is the name of the game in fermentations - gravity flow, no harsh pressings.

Anne-Sophie Dubois

Her focus in the vineyard has been incredibly labor-intensive, focusing firmly on vine health - there is much work done to keep airflow between the clusters and aerating the soil as well, all in an effort to reduce any need for treatment of the vines. The entire Domaine has been certified organic since 2019, with high-density plantings on the steep-sloped pink-granite soils classic to Fleurie.

Once the grapes reach the winery, the juice is moved via gravity, with much whole-cluster maintained for tension and complexity. There isn't much in terms of punching-down, as the fully ripe grapes already have great depth of fruit character. On occasion there is the classic carbonic maceration employed, though she isn't shy of utilizing a full-on Burgundian style especially with Les Labourons..

Lurid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red fruits, Indian spices, incense and smoky minerals. In a rich yet distinctly elegant style, offering concentrated, alluringly sweet raspberry and cherry liqueur, floral pastille and spicecake flavors that show excellent clarity and back-end thrust. Suave and seamless in texture, but possesses impressive structure thanks to a core of juicy acidity. The long, floral-dominated finish is shaped by supple tannins and shows serious tenacity.
