Details

Meursault Charmes Premier Cru Fanny Sabre, 100% Organic Chardonnay, top white Burgundy. This is a wine of real elegance and grace, from one of Fanny Sabre's Premier Cru vineyards, situated in Meursault. The crisp, minerally Chardonnay isn't masked by new oak, but has a subtle texture and creaminess woven in through its maturation. This wine is fermented in old oak barrels after slowly crushing the grapes with the pneumatic press. The wine is aged for at least 12 months in old oak with no racking or fining, and some light stirring. Just before bottling, the different barrels are assembled in stainless vats for 3 or 4 months before being lightly filtered. This will be fabulous with some age, though they rarely stick around long enough to find out!


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 fermentation 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.
