Details

Fanny Sabre Pinot Noir Cuvee Anatole IGP Sainte-Marie-La-Blanche, juicy, vibrant, Organic Pinot Noir. This is Fanny's first release under this IGP which lies 8km east of Beaune. The soil here is iron rich like in Pommard, and the wine shares many characteristics, though is a little more vibrant and youthful (and half the price!), but is not without depth and subtlety. 100% Pinot Noir (the appellation allows Gamay and Pinot Gris to be used as well), organic viticulture and wild yeast fermentation, this Cuvee is named after Fanny's youngest son Anatole. A lovely alternative to the bigger name wines from our favourite Burgundy producer.

The Fanny Sabre Domaine is located in Pommard and is just 4.5 hectares in size. Fanny makes over a dozen different cuvee so quantities of any of the wines are very low. She took over from her father who started the domaine in the 80s and learned from the help of natural wine guru Philippe Pacalet (famous for his work at Domaine Prieuré Roch) who guided her for the first few years. She works totally naturally using organic farming, wild yeast, concrete and wood for fermentations and virtually never chaptalises unless it is absolutely necessary. Her red wines are seamless, classic, dry but with a core of sweet fruit and a texture like pure velvet. The whites are very very fresh and the oak is so well integrated, you simply don't know it's there. The Meursault produced in minute quantity which vanishes extremely quickly is as crisp as a Sancerre in youth but has the potential for majesty if it ever makes to maturity, a wine to cellar and savour after 10 years.

  1. How good is this wine?

    A definite crowd pleaser. A bonafide vin de soif. But still enough lifted aroma & bright flavour to hold it's own over dinner for 2.
