In a sauté pan, place the shallots and heat for one minute on high heat. Add the wine and allow the liquid to reduce to 1/3 of the original. Add the cream and allow to simmer. Add the cold butter in pieces, shaking the pan to incorporate. Continue to shake until all butter is melted and incorporated, this will ensure that your sauce will not break. Season with salt to taste.
