I first met Francois Xavier, “FX” in 2009 when he was in charge of Chinon’s famed Charles Joguet winery. He was the winemaker at Joguet at the time and his time having access to such great vineyard connections served him extremely well. In 2010 he left Joguet and began his boutique negociant venture based in Saint-Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil, using those long-trusted relationships to sourcing the best fruit in region. This beautiful dry Chenin Blanc from Vouvray is simply captivating. Such beautiful aromatics. Stone fruit, cooked pear, warm cooking spice and river stones. Light body, round but still very vibrant. Great to just drink but stunning with river fish, chicken and pork.
