Bourgogne Aligote Fanny Sabre, dry, pure, elegant, natural wine, pure Burgundy but Aligote! Delightful taught and clean white burgundy, so delightfully easy to drink, blink and its gone. Fanny doesn’t produce this superb alternative to Chardonnay every year, only when the fruit is in great condition as it was in 2017. Aligote is noticeably crisper than Chardonnay but with Sabre wine, there is always depth and superb texture, outstanding for apero or light fish.

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 eighties 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.
