Savigny les Beaune Fanny Sabre, organic wine, 100% Chardonnay, natural wine, full yet very elegant oaked Chardonnay. The style of Fanny’s Savigny is round and supple and in youth, ripe green apples over subtle stone fruit and notes of something creamy and viscous but only very subtle. With 3 or 4 years in the bottle, these secondary flavours develop and the wine becomes more serious. Freshness abounds but the texture and creamy character of the oak is starting to come through beautifully.

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.

    Been saving this for a while, finally opened this evening to accompany scallops, and it was a stunner. Crisp and refreshing hit but with a long, full, soft, creamy finish. Perfect match, perfect wine.
