The dynamic François Xavier Barc is co-owner of both the Domaine à Deux and the negoçiant business, Complices de Loire. Domaine vineyards are in the Loir-et-Cher area and focus on pure, elegant, everyday wines. The negoçiant range covers a greater area and represents wines where FX works closely with the growers and sends in his own team for harvesting. With the grapes coming from more prestigious appellations, the wines are more ambitious with denser, richer flavours. All retain his handprint of finesse.
