ANNE SOPHIE DUBOIS Fleurie “Clepsydre” 2015

(Beaujolais, France) $29

The leaves are in a death dance. The trees are brittle and bare. The sky is wary. Autumn has fallen around us. But in my glass is a vivid, almost giddy sense of joy, for drinking great Cru Beaujolais leaves you inexplicably happy—like when you were a kid and ate handfuls of cookie dough. Anne Sophie Dubois’ Fleurie called “Clepsydre” (from 70 year old vines) is a beauty—a rush of black raspberries and peaches that have collided with violets, spices, and stony minerals. I don’t know of any other red wine in the world that can be called exuberant. But when Cru Beaujolais is at full throttle—as this one is—it is hypnotically, vibrantly, irrepressibly delicious. (13.6% abv)
