Meursault Limonzin Fanny Sabre, 100% Organic Chardonnay, Natural Wine, Burgundian classic, smooth, rich and elegant white wine. I tasted the 2012 Meursault from Fanny when it had just been bottled. It was very clean, very tight, very precise. Not a bit of the over the top butterscotch character or creaminess so often the dominating flavours of this wine. Fanny's wines are very subtle and behind the closed door of green fruits and citrus in youth, there is a wine that with time will develop into something very special. But it will take a few years and seeing as there are only around 1000 bottles a year to go at, i doubt many will see their second birthday. So, if you like to age white Burgundy, this wine is a superb option and if you also just love top class Chardonnay, open it now and it won't disappoint.
