Volnay Fanny Sabre, Organic Pinot Noir, Natural Wine, light, fresh, delicious. The Volnay appellation was created in 1937 only for red wines from Pinot Noir although strangely they allow a little Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc to be blended in. The style is light and elegant, soft tannins and fresh fruity bouquet. Fanny’s Volnay is a sheer delight for Pinot Noir lovers who enjoy the core of sweet fruit as the heart of the wine. The 2015 is lovely and will age very nicely over the next 5-8 years.

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.

    Lovely dark cherry fruit. Medium-bodied, already delicious. Clean, pure and mouth watering.
