Fanny Sabre Pommard 2018
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.
Fanny Sabre has a number of plots dispersed throughout Pommard and this wine comes from a plot of very old vines. This appellation is known for strong, austere Pinot Noir wines that take a while to reveal their best side, however the 2018 is a very good wine with lots of structure that is drinking well now. The combination of the very old vines and the complex marl soils that combine mudstone and calcium carbonate minerality help to provide the structure and complexity present in this wine.
