Simmer shallots, wine and pepper in a small heavy based saucepan until mixture is a mush without obvious liquid. Cut butter into 6 chunks and over a moderate heat start whisking it in, chunk at a time, until all is incorporated. Season with lemon juice, salt and white pepper. Sit aside in a warm place. Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente, around 10-12 minutes, drain well and toss with a little oil.
