2017 Fanny Sabre Savigny-Les-Beaune Rouge11551
VARIETAL: Pinot Noir
REGION: Burgundy, FR
WINEMAKER: Fanny Sabre
"This 100% Pinot Noir is from the Savigny-lés-Beaune appellation just north west of the very old town of Beaune in Burgundy. Red wines are the main variety in this appellation as whites are only produced in small quantities. Fanny Sabre makes all her wines using natural methods.
No filtering (there is some sediment in the wine) as she believes that this strips out the flavour, no fining, no commercial yeasts to control the fermentation and no poisonous sprays in the vineyard. The care that she takes shines through in the wines." - Living Wines
Fanny Sabre has established herself as a leading producer of quality natural Burgundy wines. She is only in her early thirties, but she has very good vines in some great appellations surrounding the ancient city of Beaune as well as a few plots in Pommard, Volnay and Meursault. Her cellar is in the small town of Pommard where she also runs a delightful cafe. She is producing a range of wines in small quantities that are snapped up by the natural wine bars proliferating in Paris and New York.
