2021 Fanny Sabre Bourgogne Blanc13474
WINEMAKER: Fanny Sabre
REGION: Burgundy, FR
"The Fanny Sabre Bourgogne Blanc is always a hot favourite. It is made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from her vineyards around the city of Beaune. The wine has been raised in tanks and has had no additions – she simply allows her wines to ferment using the natural yeasts in order to provide additional complexity. Old barrels are used to mature the wine.
It is an elegant, flavour-packed wine (think white fruits) which has seen no new oak. It lingers on the palate and matches beautifully with a range of foods. The elegance of this vintage belies its humble Bourgogne appellation. This is great drinking at this price." - Living Wines

She is only in her early thirties, but she has very good vines in some great appellations surrounding the ancient city of Beaune as well as a few plots in Pommard, Volnay and Meursault. Her cellar is in the small town of Pommard where she also runs a delightful cafe. She is producing a range of wines in small quantities that are snapped up by the natural wine bars proliferating in Paris and New York.
