2017 Savigny-lés-Beaune Rouge
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.
