Region: Anjou - Loire Valley, FRA
Francois St-Lô quickly became a rising star in the world of natural wine; quite a feat considering his first vintage was only in 2012. After apprenticing for Olivier Cousin, Baptiste Cousins’ father, he managed to acquire a magical place in the Anjou region of the Loire. With a labyrinth of underground caves, an almost prehistoric cellar and an 18th century wine press, Francois manages to make transformative, character-filled wines using his few hectares in Anjou worked with his horse.
A lightly macerated Grolleau, native to the Loire, whole bunch fermented and aged in old french barriques. Dancing on 9% alc and light as all hell.
