François Saint-Lô

François seems representative of a new generation of winemakers, committed to honest farming and never shy in attempting new approaches to winemaking. He and his horse tend to about 4.5ha of rented vines, and all cellar work is done by hand: necessarily so as the cave is such an elaborate maze of cathedral-like domes and spaces it would be near impossible to bring machinery in and out. It's been a wonderful experience to watch the wines trickle in vintage over vintage, with a real momentum of purity and finesse increasing every year.
