I learned today that François-Xavier Barc has left Charles Joguet and now plans to make his own wine in Chinon, Bourgueil or Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil.

That's a shame for Dom. Charles Joguet - I thought he did a lot of good for the wines. I look forward to seeing what he does with his own vineyards though.

I agree Chris. Hopefully the improvements seen in the Joguet wines will continue after F-X's departure.
