A car accident in 2010 made Anne Paillet reexamine her life and leave her careeer in Paris' financial district for natural wine in the Loire Valley. Not content to only make wine with her husband Gregory Leclerc, she started leasing some vines from a friend farming biodynamically in the Languedoc and started her own wine label. The wines are made in the Loire, and apparently she now is making the wine for her husband's label Chahut et Prodiges, which is maybe why these historically very gnarly natty wines got a little more approachable recently.

As for her 'Anne, A Wine Again,' it's 100% Syrah grown on limestone and red clay, fermented 60% whole cluster with semi-carbonic maceration in concrete. It finishes aging in the Loire Valley, with zero sulfur added. It definitely seems to have a Loire influence that gives lift to the darker Languedoc fruit. Blackberry and eucalyptus notes are mixed with some rustic, turbid qualities and gamey, animal wildness. But mostly it stays fresh and playful. Jonathan Kemp
