It’s in 2005 that Fanny Sabre took over the family domain. Over time she acquired prestigious parcels of vineyard in the Meursault appellation zone and today the estate consists of 4.5 hectares in Côte-de-Beaune. She was trained by Domain Prieuré Roche Philippe Pacalet for 3 years and then she got the hang of natural winemaking and learnt how to produce terroir-driven and eco-friendly wines.
Nowadays such practices as tilling, grassing and green sprays give life to the vineyard where sound and ripe white grapes are manually harvested. In her cellar-inside the town of Beaune-Fanny uses semi-carbonic maceration.--- The red juices go straight into the oak barrels right from the fermenting stage. Air is blown into these barrels in order to stir the lees. A single stirring of lees takes place and no racking will impart freshness, straightness and finesse to her numerous cuvées. Bottling is done by hand, which is the final touch to this meticulous work.
The grapes for the Fanny Sabre Bourgogne Rouge are sourced from a number of her plots around the historic town of Beaune therefore it cannot be labelled with a specific vineyard or appellation. Rather it is labelled with the more generic Bourgogne Rouge appellation.
We always love Fanny’s Bourgogne wines and this year is no exception. It is made from 100% Pinot Noir and the resulting wine is both expressive and lively with spicy red fruit notes with excellent underlying structure and well worth the asking price. Stunning!
