In a small heavy bottomed fry pan, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Cut the remaining butter into small pieces and set aside. In the hot butter saute the very finely minced shallots on medium heat until soft. Do not let them brown. Add the wine and cook and stir to reduce to about 2 tablespoons of liquid. Turn heat way down to low and whisk in the butter piece by piece. Turn up the heat so that the butter almosts comes to a boil, whisking constantly. Season with salt, pepper and saffron.
