This chardonnay is named for Fanny Sabre's youngest son Anatole, whose name means sunrise in Greek. Factoid for the day.
The vines of Sainte-Marie-La-Blanche grow in iron rich soils, not far from the famed turf of Pommard, and produce fruit with power and presence. This wine shows great fragrance of tropical fruits and stewed apples coupled to saline/citrus acidity. Serious complexity and texture for days. Share with best friends and best cheeses. Cellar a bit too if you like. Go on.
