From the Importer: "The Fanny Sabre winery is located in the famous commune of Pommard. In 2005, Fanny took control of the 4.5 hectare family estate, with the support of Philippe Pacalet. Fanny and her mother were immediately happy with the results of working their vines in a natural way. The grapes are grown organically and harvested manually. Fanny only works with indigenous yeasts for the fermentations. The fermentation of the white wines is made in old oak barrels after slowly crushing the grapes with a pneumatic press; and for the red wines, she does semi-carbonic maceration in wood and concrete vats. All wines are aged for at least 12 months in old oak barrels with no racking or fining. Fanny may make one very light stirring during the ageing. Finally, the different barrels of each wine are assembled in stainless vats for 3 or 4 months before being hand bottled. In only a few years, Fanny Sabre has made her name in the Burgundy winemaking landscape as a reference for precise and fresh wines. The wines, both white and red, are a pure expression of the terroir with a definition and elegance rarely seen."
