L'Alchimiste is named as an homage to the Paulo Coulho novel. As the book intimates, she has also followed her dreams and learned lessons. This wine is made from 40 year old vines, completely de-stemmed and fermented in concrete and various-sized barrels. A darker-hued, deep and age-worthy wine.

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..
