You don’t get much more French-sounding than Francois-Xavier, do you? And as traditional as that sounds, he is not a traditional winemaker. For one, he doesn’t own any land - that’s not that unusual in itself, but it is for basically a one-man band. He hand chooses his exceptional grapes in conjunction with some of the best producers in the Loire, and makes wines which really express where they are from. Each wine is intensely different, but all made in a modern and approachable way.
