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.

    We had this wine as a pairing when enjoying a meal at CORE by Claire Smith in Kensington, London. It is delicious, amazing, rounded, sumptuous – we loved it soooo much we tracked down Buon Vino on line as s special pressi to enjoy over Christmas – to remember the meal as happy times and also lift ourselves out of this mighty depressing national lockdown no 2 !!! Buy it, enjoy, drink it and don’t thing twice about it or the cost !!!!
