2019 Fanny Sabre Saint-Marie-La-Blanche Cuvée Anatole Blanc
2 in stock
This is a white wine that Fanny has released from this IGP appellation, whereas previously we have had a red wine from here.
The village of Sainte Marie La Blanche lies on the eastern side of the A6 freeway to Pommard and shares some of the iron rich soil that makes Pommard wines so attractive although here it is more clay and sand from the Pliocene era.
In this IGP it is possible to make wines with a mix of Chardonnay and Aligote but this one is made from 100% Chardonnay. It is named after Fanny’s youngest son, Anatole and is totally delicious.
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.
